It’s time for another month of CAKE: crafty acts of kindness everywhere! Please join me as I team up with Hopeful Threads to donate pencil pouches to deserving children.
I was delighted when Kristy at Hopeful Threads invited me to join her in her monthly service project. She will be sewing pencil pouches to donate to children living on the Dakota Reservations. To learn more about the project, visit Hopeful Threads here.
I don’t sew much, but that didn’t mean I couldn’t join in the crafting fun! My project involves paint instead of thread. Here’s how I did it:
Pencil pouch (Dollar Tree)
Craft paint (Glamour Dust)
Step two: Use a brush to dab the paint onto the pouch. Dabbing instead of brushing will help keep you from pushing the paint under the stencil.
They look so great Morena!!! Thanks so much for you help!
Very nice idea! These pencil pouches are usually pretty cheap, so for folks like me that do not sew much, you could purchase a few and decorate.
Those look great! I have never thought of painting/stenciling on them before!
