Canvas Pencil Cases
I purchased these pencil bags for my classroom. The students were very excited to decorate and use them, but within two weeks almost half of the cases came apart where the fabric meets the zipper. The children were very upset.

Just what I needed
I am in charge of new members for Kappa Pi Honorary Art Fraternity. I was trying to find items to give the new members that all majors could use for example, sketchbooks and a pencil case (that could really hold any small supplies) I found the sketchbooks but had a hard time with the pencil cases. Luckily I found these cases! And they are perfect for what I need them for! Fast shipping too!

I purchased these pencil pouches for my kindergarten students for Christmas. I decorated them myself and filled them with a few supplies for use in the classroom. Today was their first day of using them and four of them ripped at the top at the zipper seam. I am very disappointed with the quality of this product and feel it was a waste of money.

fun to decorate
My Bible study kids are really enjoying these crafts this week for our back to school parties. They're using permanent markers as well as a glitter marker for the final work. One girl has already said she's taking hers to school this week.
The girls today did some creative work with theirs and made unique pencil cases. They put their names on them and added flowers or whatever fit their own interests.

I purchsed a dozen for my daughters craft birthday party. I did notice that they were very thin and could easlily tear with a sharpened pencil. Overall , they had fun decorating the bags and they are good for holding markers and hair rubber bands well.

Poorly Sewn, Thin Canvas
These are an amazing concept that anyone could get excited over, but the execution of the item was done very poorly.
The canvas is very, very thin, and would not last long with sharpened pencils inside of them--which is an obvious problem, since they were primarily advertised as pencil cases when I bought them. The thin fabric makes it more difficult to decorate them, as well. I'm going to have to sew liners into each and every one of them to reinforce the bags and keep them from tearing.
Another issue is the sewing job in itself-- the stitches in the seams are about 1/16", which would be very easy to tear, if a sharp pencil tip were to slide in under one.
They are a good size, however, and hold an unsharpened pencil very nicely, and are very good for keeping markers. Overall, the design and concept are great, but the quality is very low. I would reserve these for very small children unless you're willing to put in the work to fix them up.

When I first saw these I wasn't impressed but after decorating them with puffy paint they are SUPER CUTE!! Easy too!! I suggest putting wax paper in between the bags before using the paint.
