Now its officially OK to say: Open that Fly and grab my Pencil :)

The Idea: To create a unique and original hand made Pencil Case to take
to school by using an old pair of Jeans with Button Fly closing system.

Step 0 ( Tools and Materials )

0.1 - Materials:
  0.1.1 - A Old pair of Trouser Jeans with a Button Fly closing system
  0.1.2 - Some Sewing String
0.2 - Tools:
  0.2.1 - A Pair of Scissors
  0.2.2 - A Needle

Step 1 ( The Choice )
  1.1 - Choose an old pair of Jeans with a Button Fly closing system
  1.2 - Button up all the Buttons from the Button Fly

Step 2 ( The Cutting )
  2.2 - Using the pair of scissors, cut out the jeans around the Button fly as
           shown in the picture
  2.3 - By doing the previous instruction you should now have a rectangular
           shaped piece of jeans with the Button Fly in the middle center part of
           it (see photo)

Step 3 ( The Sewing )
  3.1 - Fold the rectangular shaped piece of jeans so that the inside of the
           jeans are facing out.
  3.2 - Thread your needle with the sewing string
  3.3 - Start sewing from the bottom left to top left of the rectangle
  3.4 - By this stage you should have a "closed bag"

Step 4 ( The Original Pencil Case )
  4.1 - Unbutton the Buttons from the Button fly
  4.2 - Flip the bag inside out through the Button Fly
  4.3 - Sew the red Levi's brand logo ( or any other brand ) in the lower corner
           of the case for some extra "originality"
  4.4 - Pack the case with some school materials ( pencil, pens, eraser, etc. )

Step 5 ( Have Some Laughs at School )
  5.1 - Show off your unique and original hand made Levi's pencil case
  5.2 - Open that Fly and grab my Pencil :)

Step 6 ( Apply for a Patent )
  6.1 - oops :)

Great reuse of jeans. Also, the "pencils spilling out the fly" pic is almost too much. Cool project.
