I was looking for some cool back-to-school items and happened upon this Pencil Case from Kara of Petals to Picots.
This is truly a beautiful thing, most importantly because you are upcycling something you would ordinarily throw out. And, you can use small balls of scrap yarn as well.

Of course, you and I both know that this isn’t *really* for pencils. It’s for crochet hooks! hahaha!
You could get more fancy and use a sturdier inside like perhaps PVC pipe or something.
Someone mentioned on the page that using wrapping paper rolls might be sturdier than paper towel rolls.
Kara has graciously made this adorable pattern free on her website HERE.
