Pen holder for notebooks


Ever wonder where to put your favorite sketching pen so that you’ll have it when you want to sketch? I know I always was! So I made this pen sleeve to hold my pens ON my Moleskine. This one holds one pen or pencil. It’s on a black elastic band that you slip over the cover of your sketchbook (hard-cover books only, soft cover ones would bend under the elastic). Let me know the size of your book and I’ll make an elastic band that fits it. For illustration purposes, the Moleskine in the picture (not included) is a "Large" size plain notebook, with a cover that is 5 by 8.25 inches. The pen shown in the holder is a Sakura Pigma Micron (not included).

The holder is 1 by 5.375 inches and is made from a double layer of quality cotton fabric with a strip interfacing reinforcing the pen clip area. The holder is on a piece of 0.5-inch wide black elastic (or 0.375-inch wide natural color elastic) that is not removable. The holder will slide up and down on the elastic. This fabric features Japanese floral designs on a brick-red background.
