I’ve had this tote for a few years now and have used it for everything from rubber stamps, beading, painting and, of course…my yarnie goods. This baby has to be the most versatile little crafty tote that I own!
Right now it’s housing my stripey colors while I work on the last finishing details of the latest striped project for the book. It works really well for this! All the colors stay separate and organized, there’s room for my notebook and tool pouch in the center divider, not to mention all those outside pockets that are great for stashing tools that I need to grab in a hurry, such as loom tools, scissors, crochet hook, etc. I just love this thing! 😀
I tried to find this baby online for you so that you could pick one out to have as your very own. Sadly, I didn’t have much luck. I originally purchased mine at Michaels Crafts…hopefully they still have them. They’re usually housed in the scrapbooking area. The brand is Scrap Paper Scissors. I did find this assortment of goodies that have some great options online. I’m kinda liking the idea of the bucket organizers listed here!
I also found this (which I very much love!)…and this (which I love even more, lol!) I’m intrigued by the idea of it sitting on the floor. This would be great for larger projects that you needed extra room to house, or for working on a project in an area that didn’t have much table space. It looks like Joann is even having a pretty good sale on them right now too! Rats…look what happens when I go searching online…I find more things that I want to make mine, lol! Ooopsie…
Hope you’re having a phenomenal October so far! 🙂
That is one very sweet tote… I have tons of baskets, bags, totes, etc… but none of them have the nice dividers and side pockets. Now, I gotta get one…!!!
I can’t wait for your book. I have seen the tote you have in the stores. It is great for projects. The second item you have from Joann’s I already purchased. I think I got it on sale at Herrsheners. It is perfect right next to my chair. It has a lid that covers the contents and works very well. the small pockets house my hooks, scissors, yarn needles and those reading glasses. The bottom is for pattern books or whatever I want at the time like another project. The inside holds tons of stuff. I put projects in there that I’m currently working on. I also got a cute cabinet at Target that has a door on it and two shelf areas. I decided to put my beads in there for now but it will eventually hold yarn also I’m sure. That is the perfect height for my lamp. I haven’t had a well lit area since we moved the room around. I love this set up for my loom knitting corner now. We have to make it efficient now don’t we? I’m still working on my room but it is coming along nicely. What a mess it was. Now I can see better what I want to do next.
I have a similar one to the Art Kit one and I love it, it is the BagSmith pictured here: http://www.overstock.com/Crafts-Sewing/Bagsmiths-Famous-Canvas-Craft-Bag/3344317/product.html
Lots of little pockets to store stuff :). A good bag to carry all the stuff is definitely necessary :).
Isela, that is a completely terrific bag! Rats…now I have another reason to shop, lol! 😉 I love the height of the one you show, as well as the fact that it has that fold up wire frame…too cool!
Jeannette…way to go on your organization progress! I can’t wait to see your pics in the group. 😉 You’re right, it’s definitely much nicer when we can see what we have in front of us, rather than having to dig. What you said about that stand up baggie thing is exactly what I thought it would be like…in other words, pretty much perfect, lol. Leave it to you to already have it in your crafty arsenal! ;D
Jolene…so sorry to have enabled your shopping bug, lol! But I hear you on having tons of carry type things, but always wanting something just a touch better or more usable. I hope you can find a great one with all these links pointing you in the right direction! 😉
Thanks so much for posting, ladies! Big hugs!
