Pencil Pouch for Orphanage
Plus a few cute Japanese school supplies. Got the idea for the cotton webbing loop and carabiner from this zakka-inspired pencil pouch tutorial by Anna Graham, aka noodlehead: www.noodle-head.com/2009/12/tutorial-zakka-inspired-penci...
Anna uses a split ring (like a keyring), but I thought a carabiner would be fun because then a boy could easily attach the pouch to a belt loop or some such thing.
