I made this zippered case for my small craft supplies using clear vinyl trimmed with fabric that coordinates with color of items being stored.  Using the clear vinyl allows me to see exactly what is being stored in the case.  This case is actually made to hold a lucite photo frame that I use for a tray.  I have about twenty four Elfa type drawers in my studio each containing supplies of a different color so it will take me a while to make clear pouches for all of them!  But during a recent move where some of my beads, buttons and other found objects were jostled out of their open trays, it will be worth it to have them contained safely while at the same time being viewable.  (For me, out of sight is truly out of mind!)  Luckily, I can purchase zippers of every color very inexpensively at the Mill End Store in Portland, OR when I go there to visit family every few months.

I'll have to show them this article and tell them how to get started. All of them in Manly are quite the neat freaks and they'll love any opportunity to do some crafty thing to get their craft storage in proper order!

I think I would try to make one of these to store bits and pieces of stuff lying on my desk like keys, paper clips and so on. Not only do these pouches keep them neat inside but they also keep the dust away. Such a convenient storage solution. Thanks for sharing.
