The other day I looked at some old emails from Etsy and here’s what caught my eye:
Isn’t that a gorgeous leather pencil case? Who wouldn’t love receiving it as a gift?
So I did a search for pencil cases on Etsy and found many unique ones, unlike the cases I saw in local stores during back-to-school sales. Here are some that caught my eye, many of them handmade (click the highlighted words below each picture to see the product information):
Animals, like these llamas and otters, are a popular theme.
And sea life, especially sharks. Sharks, style 1.
I think this is a carp.
And, of course, if there are any unicorns, I will find them. Unicorn, whole.
Also from the mythical realm, mermaid.
And a final animal. Is that–
Yes, it is–made from a dead (taxidermy) rat.
With an attached pencil sharpener, strategically located. You’re welcome.
Okay, let’s erase that image with a little bling:
For the science nerds.
Lovely tribal look.
Wow! I could put all my colored pencils in this roll-up instead of an old mayonnaise jar.
Hogwarts houses. (If you don’t know what that means, read the Harry Potter series already, you muggle.)
Glow-in-the-dark human bones.
Lovely classic Liberty of London fabric.
Monet waterlilies. This comes in different sizes.
Laser-cut lidded cases.
Okay, your turn. Share in the comments below: which are your favorites? I’m partial to the llamas, sloths, carp, Hogwarts, and science ones.
I ordered the Hogwarts one. Couldn’t resist.
