Operation Organization: Pouches for Toys

Posted by on Mar 21, 2012 | 2 comments

I fit some sewing in a few weeks ago and am so happy with what I ended up with.  My kids had a few toys that needed to be contained.  Some blocks that needed a better/cuter home than a Ziploc bag, and Connectagons from my mom at Christmas time.

I knew just where to go for what I needed.  My friend Kari’s blog, Handmade Mommy, has a lovely tutorial on fishing reel drawstring bags.  I thought they’d be perfect for the kids because they are easy to open and shut, and you can make them whatever size you need.  Here’s my final product:

Aren’t they cute?  I lined the inside with white flannel just to keep them a bit thicker and sturdy.

These blocks look so much better in a cute bag, don’t you think?

Thanks so much for the tutorial, Kari!


  1. these are adorable!
    i want one for all my daughter’s Barbie accessories. especially if I could find Barbie fabric so I knew exactly what goes inside that particular bag. love.
    just pinned too.

  2. LOVE LOVE LOVE what you did with the tutorial! Now I’m thinking of all the things I could bag up and organize…oh the possibilities!
