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!

K.I.S. Bags

Did I mention addiction before? I’m sure I did. Zipper addiction! Actually, bag-making addiction made better with zippers.

The past couple days I have been playing around with my sewing machine and some fabulous Fabrics, working on the details to make these nice little bags. I am calling them K.I.S. Bags, or “Keep it Simple” Bags.

Bag #1 (shown in a previous post):

I decided it was too small for my intended purpose.

This is bag #2:

The size was just about perfect, So I made Bag #3:

Then Bag #4, which is now my purse:

The finished size is: 7″ tall by 9″ long by 3 1/2″ wide. I measured my purse after it was filled. If you are curious how much will fit in it: I have two epipens, two check books, a wallet, inhaler, small SketchBook, Ink pen, a mirror, comb, a small gift card holder, and a small bottle of Tylenol in this bag. And I could probably fit a little bit more.

They may be simple, but they have so many possible uses! Purse, toiletry bag, shaving kit, first aid kit, travel bag, sewing kit, kid’s pencil/pen bag, and more! Even emergency chocolate stash bag, according to my mom.

My husband said this would be something he thinks men would use as well as long as it was in masculine Fabrics for shaving kits and travel kits.

I’m having a blast making them.
