I like to keep my projects nice and organized and my favorite way to do that is with Box Bags. I have a few of them, but not enough for all my projects. Some people, including my immediate family members, would say the best way to fix that problem is to finish some of the projects I have going. I think the best way is to get more project bags :-) Buying more bags though means I have less money for yarn :-( So with my trusty friend Google I went looking for tutorials on the web to make some. I thought that this tutorial was the best one, so I bookmarked it for when I was ready to sew.
Yesterday was finally the day that I dug out my sewing machine and stumbled my way through my first bag. Tom was away, the boys were busy so I could spread out over the dining room. This morning Tom sees my first completed bag on the dining table and comments on it. "Hey! You made that project bag you wanted to. Looks good!" "Well, I don't think I should quit my day job for it" I replied. "Why?" he asks. (At this point it's only fair to tell you that he was not wearing his glasses) "I'm not sure if it's more Dr. Seuss or Tim Burton-ish, but it is so not symmetrical it's kind of embarrassing." To which he replied..."Well you know what they say. The first pancake never comes out the best." I think he's been waiting to use that phrase since he first heard it on Modern Family!
My first bag is taller on one end than the other, by almost 3/4 of an inch.
JoAnn Fabrics to get more interfacing, but I already have fabric picked out for my next bags.
How do you like to organize your projects?
