Question Will markers fit in Kiplings womens 100 pen case

So I was on Amazon one day and saw a case called the Kipling womens 100 pen case. It says it's for storage of pens and can hold 100 of them. My question is has anyone used this case? Can you put markers such as Tim Holtz or Tombow in this case? I store most of my markers in cans on my desk but they seem to go all over the place if I want to take them to a class or crop. I was so excited that the Kipling was such a pretty case instead of a plain black case. Any ideas out there?

I Googled Kipling pen case and the flowered one on their website that says 100 pens, shows a photo of the case open, and the loops for the pens look quite small. This looks more like a traveling case that something to keep in a craft area where you would want easy access.

Also, there are only 26 loops. (The best layout pictures I found are on http://www.amazon.com/Kipling-100-Pens-Pencil-Case/dp/B001OXUZFW/ref=sr_1_12?ie=UTF8&qid=1456635522&sr=8-12&keywords=kipling+women+100.) Under the flap is just a large area for holding whatever, and for the price, you may as well just grab a makeup bag.

I agree with what the previous posters said. It looks to me like a pretty expensive make up bag!

I've found it very helpful when I look at stuff on Amazon to take time to read the reviews carefully. You can find out quite a bit about the product that doesn't show up in the pictures or description.

I agree with everyone above. I think, especially for the price, it will fall short of your expectations. Here are a couple of photos that show what size pens/markers will fit the loops and how the rest of your items need to be stored in the opening below those looped panels:

What types of markers are you looking to store? Are they thin, like a standard pen? Or are they thick like a Sharpie or chunky like a highlighter or Copic? Do you need them to be sorted by color? Or is it OK to store in them all together in a big group?

All my Copic markers fit into one of these ArtBin storage satchels with two inserts (I bought the second separately): http://www.amazon.com/ArtBin-Storage-Satchel-1-Marker-Dividers/dp/B00AI73XOAIt is easy to store my markers in color order and makes it convenient to take them to a friend's house. For the most part, I like this system and have no immediate plans to change. But I sometimes find the box bulky and unwieldy. I'm so glad I did not get the double size that so many of the ladies use. If money were not an issue, I'd rather have two of these: http://www.amazon.com/Blue-Hills-Studio-60-Piece-Horizontal/dp/B001EO7YLE/ref=sr_1_24?s=arts-crafts&ie=UTF8&qid=1456699269&sr=1-24&keywords=Copic+marker+case
