Custom pencil cases for the 2016 WeMake Celebrates design conference.

Custom pencil cases for the 2016 WeMake Celebrates design conference.

For the second installment of WeMake Celebrates, we decided to recycle leftover fabric from the previous year's tote bag project and turn them into pencil cases. The screen printed design creates an abstract marking, giving a unique feel to each case. Make/Mend created 500 custom pouches for conference attendees that were gifts in each swag bag. The quality fabric and construction assure a long life for these little guys!

We recycled leftover fabric originally cut and printed for tote bags in 2015.
