From the Stash: Plastic Bag Storage (& tutorial)


So I finally finished my overnight bag, and I thought I would share a few photos of that before sharing my new project for this week:
 
 
 
 

I am super happy with the outcome! I think it might be a little small for a real overnight bag, and the lining is a little baggy. But I plan on playing with the pattern and using up more fabric from my stash. And then I will increase the size and have two separate patterns. Perhaps this size will work well as a baby/diaper bag! I also created a short tutorial on how to make the interior pocket for the bag, click on the tutorials page above and the appropriate tutorial.

And on to this week's creation. A solution for the mess that is our bottom kitchen drawer.

I decided it would be a good idea to make a plastic bag holder that can hang in out pantry cupboard. I had a bit of veggie fabric left and found a few pieces in the stash that went along with it. I'm basically going to make one long tube of fabric, and I'm just hoping it will be big enough to store all the bags that we currently have (I'm not sure where they came from, we generally use reusable bags for groceries, etc.).

I think I might do a little tutorial for this one too, so be on the look-out for that next week!

Happy Crafting, and enjoy your weekend!
