Drawstring Pencil Bag

Lately I have not been able to work on any of my current wips so 
I'm going to share with you some of my old projects on this post
and on the upcoming one.
 I up-cycle/recycle one of the legs of a pair of dd's jeans that 
didn't fit any longer.
 After sewing the opening where I cut them from the 
pair of jeans I unpicked a few stitches from the factory made
seam, as it shows in the picture above and
threaded a piece of string with a safety pin through it.
 Added a few felt embellishments to the ends of the string and
tied knots to secure them plus I also added a mini mushroom
pocket that I sewed in place by hand.
Filled the bag up with most of dd's pencils and craft scissors ...
 and there you go a very quick, easy, economical, durable, practical and
cute project to make in 25 minutes or less.
As far as embellishing goes the sky is the limit!
Love that cute little pocket!
(This pouch was made in 2008.)
