The Art of the Pencil Case

The other day I looked at some old emails from Etsy and here’s what caught my eye:

PC Leather 2

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):

PC Llamas

Animals, like these llamas and otters, are a popular theme.

PC Corgi

PC Flamingo

PC Shark

And sea life, especially sharks. Sharks, style 1.

And, of course, if there are any unicorns, I will find them. Unicorn, whole.

And a final animal. Is that–

PC Taxidermy

Yes, it is–made from a dead (taxidermy) rat.
