Ask any woman close to you this question: "What's something you would change about the way your clothing is made?" Go ahead, I'll wait! I already know the answer. She either said, "I want it to be made smaller" (which in case, tell her she's perfect), or she said, "I want it to have better pockets". Pockets are a major point of contention for women. We are being absolutely robbed of good pockets in the name of fashion! Although Yazzii doesn't offer clothing, they do have you covered in the pocket market! There are two bags to talk about today- both of them have detachable pockets!
Storage Craft Box- CA474
The Storage Craft Box has two main compartments- one has a large area for Works in Progress (WIPs) or fabric, and the second has the word of the day: Pockets! There are four detachable pockets in different layouts that can hold just about any notion you can think up! You can have one pocket as a working pocket- stash your English Paper Piecing papers, fabric, scissors, needles and thread. Then, instead of carrying the whole craft box with you on a trip, take just that pocket! You can work on it while you're away from home, then bring it back home to the rest of the box. Or, you could have one pocket dedicated to basting pieces, and one dedicated to sewing. It's still easy to just grab and go and still make progress on your project.
Four Pocket Organizer- CA340
If you want something that's a little smaller but still offers a lot of storage space, try the Four Pocket Organizer. This handy little bag has a single compartment that opens up to reveal storage space as well as four detachable pockets! The pockets in this one are identical, but you can still turn it into a "grab and go" kind of bag. You can add a different key chain or bauble to each one to easily differentiate between the bags! And you get bonus points for personality and personalization! I would use this bag for each step of project prep. One pocket with my fabric cutting tools and templates, one for basting English Paper Piecing shapes, one with sewing notions, and one with finished pieces. Then I'd use the large open pocket to store my work in progress! Detachable pockets are a great feature for these bags to help your project stay organized. You might decide to store the entire bag together or pull out the pockets separately for on-the-go work. Just trust your process and know you've chosen beautiful, sturdy bags for what you need!
