DIY Flash Drive Organizer
Due to work, I have to keep quite a few flash drives - each for a different type of job or client - in my bag. Although there are small compartments in my bag, I still find myself having to ransack through other stuff in the same pocket to get to the right flash drive. I've looked everywhere for a flash drive organizer but I just can't find one that I like; and most importantly, I do try not to make unnecessary new purchases.
So I went to get some inspiration and help from my sewing box, and made this:
I found some fabric scrap big enough for my flash drive organizer pattern, an old zip I saved from some old clothes, and an old and partly used Ikea fleece blanket (which I've used some for the snake stuffed toy). Here are the few simple steps of the making of the flash drive organizer that's now happily residing in my bag:
1. Little pockets sewn onto the inner layer, then wrapped around with the fabric.
2. Secure the sides with a basting stitch, then a running stitch all round.
3. Fold it up and stitch each side with running stitch (see needle).
4. Sew the zip onto the top open edge.
