Blue Calla: Plumbago Organizer Pouch

Class Description

The Plumbago Organizer Pouch has so many useful possibilities — It can be a sewing notion organizer, a craft/art supply pouch or even a first aid kit!

On the outside of the pouch is one zippered compartment with 2 mesh/clear vinyl pockets at the back and elastic loops to hold the items of your choosing. Elastic placement suggestions are provided for pens/markers but you can customize them to suit your needs.

Inside the pouch are 3 additional mesh/clear vinyl pockets, 1 zippered pocket as well as 1 large zipper compartment that acts as a divider for the interior of the pouch. There is a metal frame within the bag that helps it stay open wide when unzipped.

Feel free to customize this bag further by adding an extra zipper compartment on the back exterior or more mesh pockets inside, under the zipper pocket!

This special Sunday workshop will be led by the designer behind Blue Calla patterns, Celine!
