Hedgehog/Moleskine Hack #2

Okay so a lot of people ask about how to attach a pen to a moleskine/hedgie. I stick to fountain pens which are a little larger than many pens (cross Ion seems to be the most popular.) Here’s how I attach my rotring Graphite fountain pen (Or my Vintage Pelikan GO! pen.)

First I hook the clip through the elastic, pointing away from the spineof the book. I then bring the pen to the back of the book.

Then I stick my fingers through the elastic at the bottom of the book a couple of twists later I am able to form a loop that will hold my pen.

I stick my pen into the loop and release. It holds well in my bag but not so well in my back pocket.
