Bags, Bags, and More Bags

Well, I have been working hard at making bags, pouches, and more for the past couple months getting ready for a craft show at Michigan BuskerFest. It is this Saturday, and I think I’m at the point where I feel ready.

A pile of bags:

K.I.S. bags:

Medium vinyl pouches:

Wallet style vinyl pouches:

Business/ credit card size pouches:

Coin/earbud pouches:

And the newest in the line up, dispenser bags for carrying waste bags for dog walking. They are also great for parents. Why? Well, ever been in a restaurant with your little one and they have that dreaded diaper explosion…all over? Have a dispenser bag with you and you can bag up the clothes to contain the mess.

Wish us luck!

Prototype: Doggie Bag

A week or so ago my hubby told me he had another idea. A bag to carry a roll of plastic bags for dog walking. I’ve let the idea percolate in my brain for the week and tonight I sketched it out then started cutting and sewing.

One of the main features was to have an opening to dispense the baggies. Easily done, but I made this one a little too open. I think the next one will have a skinnier opening, and I might add some vinyl between the layers around the opening to stiffen it up.

Another feature we discussed was being able to easily clip the bag to a leash or belt loop.

I also squared the bottom corners so it stands nicer.

This holds a 4 1/2″ wide roll of baggies easily.

Now to make the next one with a couple minor changes.

If you have a dog that you walk and clean up after, do you see anything that could be improved on this design? I appreciate any feedback!
