Once a week, a few members of my family and I meet up for a Bible study. It never fails, I always forget my highlighter and pen. This week, I had an *aaaah* moment when I realized I could design something to attach to my Bible that could hold and store my highlighter. Eliminating my problem of not knowing what to do with my highlighter when its not in use. I present to you “Penzy”– A FREE crochet pattern for a highlighter/Pen holder for books. Penzy has an adjustable strap making it perfect for all books no matter the size!
