Easy Vinyl Bags by Lil Blue Boo

February 16, 2012

If you are Typa A like me, you might wish you could put everything in a little baggie to keep things all organized =)

My husband often jokes that if I could put him in a tupperware box I would…hmmm………………


A while back Ashley from Lil Blue Boo posted a tutorial about how to make quick and easy vinyl bags.  Well, I finally got around to making them!

Here’s my version!  Check out her tutorial here.  The main difference between mine and hers are that I used double fold bias tape for all the edges instead of the elastic.  Only because I had a lot of inexpensive bias tape I bought from Pick Your Plum, and I didn’t want to use up all of my elastic!

I love these bags because they are clear, so it is easy for R to see what is in them and decide if she wants to play with them or not, AND they don’t take a lot of space!

Look at this picture above – I used to have these little spiral art thingies in that gold box (only because I didn’t have anything else to put them in) and now I have them in a bag that is way more compact.  And you can actually see what is in it!  I don’t know how many times I opened that box saying “what is in this thing??”

And really, they are quick and easy.  I made all of the ones you see in the first picture in one afternoon – actually less than one afternoon.  Probably 2 hours?

As you can see in the first picture, I made a lot of different sizes to fit different things.  In fact, I might use some of the smaller ones for my “toys” =)

I also made a really wide one, and put 2 elastics on it 1/3 of the way in from each side for larger toys.

So if you wanna make some, buy a vinyl shower curtain or table cloth, go to Lil Blue Boo’s tutorial, and get started!

Have fun organizing your hearts out!
