Ruler Storage – Repurpose of Another Bag
As you recall, not too long ago I went to a ruler sale at Quilter’s Rule in Waterford, Wisconsin. I picked up a few different rulers – I now have a total of eight. I told Sue I wanted to find a clever way to store them where they are handy and accessible but not in the way. Luckily for me, she took herself to the internet and found the Omnigear Chevron On The Go Carry Bag.
The carryall is big enough to hold an 18″ x 24″ mat, but it also has all these cool pockets. I thought this might be perfect because I can hang it from the side of my sewing table and use the pockets for the rulers. Should we ever get to participate in a retreat or some other event where we need to pack a mat, we’re all set!
Here is the bag so you can see all the different pouches. I really like the mesh pocket at the bottom – that makes it really easy to see what’s inside. Two of my longer rulers fit well in the other bottom pocket, and stick out a bit so I can see what they are.
I decided to hang the bag (without the strap) on the side of my sewing table. After using two of those little hooks that you can hang cups on or other lightweight items, it fit just perfectly. I tucked the strap into one of the pockets – you never know when you might need it. You can see the rulers sticking slightly out of the left pocket, and the mesh on the bottom right. I’ll give this a test run for a while and see if it works in the long run. It sure seems like it will as they’re handy but not in the way.
