    After a huge search across the internet, my daughter picked the blue pencil pouch for school supplies. She loved the design, but I decided to buy the four-pack since the price was low and I figured it might be wise to have a few extras available. When they arrived, she absolutely loved them, but in my opinion, they’re absolute garbage. All four had zippers that were jammed on the inner fabric before I had even touched them. I spent five minutes working the interior fabric out of the zipper of one of them. I then lightly ironed the interior fabric hopping that would reduce the chance of the fabric getting caught again… nope! The zipper jammed again upon closing it.

    The problem is, pouches like this normally have a flap made of stiffer material behind the zipper to keep the fabric from getting caught… this does not. Instead, they use some spray adhesive between the outer and inner layer to keep the inner material from bunching up. This would work, had the person making this pouch actually take the time to first flatten the material out… instead, there was excess material at the top, thus causing the fabric to get caught in the zipper REPEATEDLY.

    My daughter was heartbroken when I told her we’d have to return them. Instead, I ended up stitching a piece of pink trim fabric to the inside, making my own flap. Works great and looks perfect… just ridiculous that I had to modify these things just to get them to work right.

    A few other notes…
    1) The interior material is extremely thin… I doubt it will last very long.
    2) The spray adhesive between the inner and outer layers caused the pink inner layer to discolor. Not very obvious, but you can see yellow streaks inside.
    3) Ultra poor quality… each of the four pouches had long threads poking our from everywhere… had to trim them all as well.
    4) The pouch is barely big enough to hold a full size pencil. An unsharpened pencil is 7-1/2″ long. The pouch itself is 7-3/4″ on the outside… the zipper opening is only a maximum of 7-1/4″
    5) Yes, as mentioned by others, the label on the outside has a grammatical error that truly fortifies the low-quality feel of these things… worse yet, the stitching on these labels is terribly crooked.

    My daughter loves these pouches. After stitching in flaps on either side of each pouch, cutting off all the threads left on it from manufacturing, and finally sharpening all my daughter’s pencils down to a maximum of 6″, she can now use it…

    I posted some pictures above showing the issues I had with these pouches.

    These are cute little cases. I use them to keep my paintbrushes separated when I am traveling. The canvas is durable and sturdy in my art bag. They are kind of small, so not a lot fits in them.

    The translations on the sayings seem to be off. Like somebody put a foreign language in babble fish hit translate to English and then slapped it on the labels. It does give me a giggle every time I read them.

    Not much else to say, because they are just pencil bags. I am okay with them, but they are a bit pricey for the quality.

    These pencil pouches are cute, good price, and decent quality. They’re perfect for all ages, elementary school or college! The designs are nice and simple, not too distracting. The words on the front are a little jumbled so it doesn’t make sense, but that’s easy to ignore. The fabric is very soft and nice – the only problem is that the zipper gets caught half the time when I try and open it. However, it takes less than 5 seconds to fix that. Usually pencil cases that are both simple are cute are hard to find (especially at a good price), but these were perfect.
