DIY Sunday...



My mum got me this bag organiser recently, I could have sworn she said it was from Lakeland, but looking on their site, I cannot find it anywhere. Maybe they are just available in the shop.

It has to be one of the single most useful things in my chaotic life. Endless hours of searching for keys or a ringing phone in my bottomless bags are a thing of the past. I can swop handbags every day, and literally just lift this out and pop it in the next bag.

In a dramatic reconstruction, I've mocked up what could go in here. To save anyone's blushes, I haven't necessarily put in the real things that I carry around. Normally there would be serveral pairs of pants... not for me... for my potty training son, and occasionally some for the BF, well you never know when you might need them.

As I haven't been able to find a link to this if anyone was interested in bagging their own, I have a special treat for you:

Make your own! Yep, you heard it hear first. There are several tutorials available on tinternet, but this is one of my faves here... because it comes with... a downloadable pdf! mama mia! Not exactly the same... mine has handles, but lovely nonetheless.

Happy crafty Sunday everybody peeps!






ps. gosh, don't forget to enter my second sweetie giveaway, you gotta be innit to winnit...

Hi there-how very versatile and useful, great stuff!!

I like the idea of having an "organized bag." Would make life a lot easier than always having to search for your keys.

I think that's a very smart idea! My mom is currently making a similar version for herself - she bought a bag that does not have any inner compartments, and is sewing a liner with pockets that will snap into the original bag. So smart!

That does look awfully handy!

I've seen items similar to this one and I've always thought they'd be the most useful things ever! The one reason I hate switching bags is because I always end up leaving something behind. Thanks for sharing!

I love bag organizers... I always carry huge bags and my stuff will get lost somewhere if not for bag organizers. Thanks for the link on the DIY.
