To make this pencil pouch, all you need is a paint pen in the color of your choice. From there, it’s just about finding a style and a shape that you love. You could even start with a scratch piece of paper to plan your shapes before you add them to the pencil pouch. Or pencil the design on your pouch before you get started.
It’s always best to use simple, blocked shapes. It’s modern and fresh in style. And it’s easier to control your finished product. You will be so much happier with the results. I would recommend: a Swiss Cross (that’s what I chose), polka dots, stars, or perhaps evil eyes!
Use simple, small brushstrokes to cover your pencil pouch with your symbols. Don’t worry if it’s not perfect – it will still look great!
Simple Tips for Making Your DIY Pencil Pouch Perfect:
1. Use a pencil to mark the canvas where your symbols will go. Then you can plan the layout and make any changes you need before you ink the canvas.
2. For any straight lines or geometric shapes, use a ruler. Such a simple tool makes a big difference in how professional the finished product looks.
