Hooked on Teaching: Crochet a Pencil Bag for Teacher Appreciation Week or End of Year Gifts

Teacher Appreciation Week is upon us! It's time to start thinking about how to show your gratitude for the educators in your life. What better way to say "thank you" than with a handmade gift? And if you're a fan of crochet, we've got just the thing for you!

Introducing the crochet pencil bag pattern – shaped just like a giant pencil! Teachers have their hands full! Am I right? Why not help them with an extra place to stash stuff, like their phone, wallet, gum, sunglasses, chapstick, keys, or a Snickers bar to give them the 30 second rush of endorphins they need to get them through the rest of their day!

And the best part? We've got a free pattern for you to follow!

The pattern is easy to follow. You'll need some basic crochet supplies, about 40 minutes, and of course, you'll need some fun goodies to toss in it. I recommend chocolate, or a water bottle, sunscreen, and chapstick, after all, the last week of school is all about field trips, picnics, and hot spring sun! You'll love the end result and so will those amazing teachers!

The finished bag measures approximately 10.5 inches tall by 5 inches wide, making it the perfect size for a crossbody bag.

Not only is this bag fun and functional, but it also shows your appreciation for the hard work and dedication that teachers put in every day. Create a gift they can use for years to come. I hope you enjoy this free pattern! Happy Teacher Appreciation week to all the creative, endearingly patient souls out there brave enough to handle teaching!!
