A Bag in a Bag in a Bag

So instead of wardrobe building, I spent April purely focusing on my Craft Book Challenge craft: The Origami Bag from Amy Butler’s Style Stitches.

You know how you put small objects in a larger bag and they always seem to fall to bottom corners so you end up digging and digging or dumping the entire contents just to find the darn thing?  Yeah, I was in desperate need of something to solve this problem.

When I take my earrings off before my workout I can throw them in one of these bags and easily retrieve them without a hassle.  I can use the larger ones for toiletries, intimates, electronics, etc.  These bags come in 6 different sizes (extra-small, mini, small, medium, large, extra-large) so there is a size for just about everything.

Because I wanted to use up a little more fabric in the stash I even made a second set which I have hopes to offload to someone in need (or want!) of some catch-all bags.

I still have a few more to complete, but I am so ready to get back to more sewing for the wardrobe.

A Bag in a Bag in a Bag

30 Days of Crafting – My Craft Bags

I prefer to keep the tools and projects for each particular hobby separated if I can help it.   It’s easier for me to find my things if they are kept in the same place every time.  That’s why I’ve got a bag for just about each craft:

  • A rolling bag to travel with the sewing machine and sewing projects
  • A rolling bag to travel with several knitting projects
  • A bag to travel with beads and jewelry projects
  • Several bags/rolling totes holding scrapbooking/card making supplies
  • 3 different sized craft tool caddies (Tote-ally Cool Totes)
  • A small needle work bag

I use my favorite craft carry-all primarily for knitting at home, but also for knitting and other small projects I want to take on the go.
