I have been messing around with scrap yarn project ideas and came up with these....disposable pen covers ;) They fit disposable pens such as Bic and Papermate, without the cap.

What a cute idea :) That would've help me as a kid I always had a caluss on my finger from holding my pencil too tight. Actually I still have the callus :think My hands are always very tense so I must still hold pens & pencils tight.

Wow that's really cute. I like them thanx for the pattern.
There will always be people who say mean words because you are different and sometimes their minds cannot be changed.

But there are many more people who do not judge others based on how they look or where they are from. THOSE are the people whose WORDS truly matter.

Not only are they adorable, they will be a big help to anyone who has trouble gripping, as it gives a softer, yet easier to hold covering. Thanks.

That is soo cool! And what great timing! For Teacher Appreciation Week next week, we are supposed to send a flower to both the teacher and TA. I was going to do the daffodil pencil cover at Lion Brand:

NOW, I think I'll do the pencil one AND your flower pen one. Two flowers each are better than one, right? :lol
