2. Place the fabric wrong side up and stick a strip of Duck Tape down the centre. Don’t worry if you go wonky – you can peel it off and do it again.

3. Fill up the back of your fabric with different strips of Duck Tape. Overlap your tape slightly and smooth out any bubbles with your fingers.

 4. Trim the excess Duck Tape off the sides so it is flush to the material.

5. To turn it into a pencil case, fold the fabric four inches up from the bottom with the tape side out and press down. Then fold and press two inches from the top to create the flap.

6. Using Duckling Tape, tape the edges together.  Make a little snip at the pencil case’s flap so that the opening isn’t restricted by tape. Trim the excess tape from the top and bottom of the case.

7. If you want the pencil case to have more body, tuck in the corners. Push the corner of the case in with your finger about a centimetre. Press it flat. You can tape it if you like, or leave it open.

8. Tape the top and inside raw edges with the Duckling Tape as before, then add stick-on Velcro so your pencil case closes.

Top Tip…

Duck (and Duckling!) tape is a really easy craft material to use and can be added to almost anything. Why not make a little bookmark, or personalise your notebook and pencils to match your pencil case.
