Craft of the Week

Zipper Bags

I’ve been making these little zipper bags lately. I’m totally addicted to them now. They are so cute and so easy and they turned the mess inside my purse into a pretty fun place (for me) to see. I got the idea from The Simple Wife Handmade (she has a bunch of really cute zippy purses for sale right now). I then followed the tutorial guide from here.

I made several for my purse to hold sets of things that usually all fall to the bottom in a heap.

What's in the bag?

I’ve got one for all things financial; my checkbook, wallet, calculator, loose change, ect. Another holds a couple of notepads and my pens. Another is for all the plastic cards I need for various places (Blockbuster, Oberweis, etc.), and another holds all things girly, including, but not limited to lip gloss and errant hairbands.

The final look makes me smile really big. But then again, it doesn’t take much.

An Organized Purse

I had to go to Walmart today and while there, stocked up on zippers (my first two bags were made from some old zippers I had in a box, circa 1977). I have a feeling my scrapbook is now on hold.

    Oh no! What have I done? Craftster is… wow.
    Mom – we can make you some bags this weekend. No prob.
    Oh, and fabric envy? I believe I mentioned the other day I’ve become quite the fabric snob as of late. I totally love these fabrics. Got two of them locally at a home dec shop and two of them from Sew, Mama, Sew!

    Megan – I’ve been eying Joanne’s cute bags too! And, I did make one for my camera before Samuel was born, I’d like to make a couple more. Yours look great and if the inside of my purse looked like that I’d smile too!

    Since I will be seeing you this weekend, maybe a few of these cute bags will end up in my purse, too. My intentions always start out good and then by the time I come and go a few times, my purse looks like a trash bag.
    Love, Mom

    These are great! I’ll try to control my fabric envy….those are great prints. Do I spy a Financial Peace envelope system there? You’d find the same one in my purse, though if you found it there it would be nearly empty. πŸ™‚
