  1. Perfect for Shoes and Everything Else

    I made a set of these wondering how they would turn out. I love them! They are THE BEST bags I've seen in a long time. Then I made a set for everyone in my family for Christmas, from kids to adults. Everyone needs a shoe bag and these are perfect. The other sizes are great for holding everything else. I even made a bunch of them - resized - to use as gift bags for little thank you gifts. I needed bags that wouldn't lose their contents and with a zipper, that won't happen. These worked out great and looked way too cute in Christmas fabrics. The directions are very well written and easy to follow.

  2. Love these bags.

    I made two of these (so far). One for myself and one for my husband for traveling. I made the largest size (knowing I have big feet). Mine holds three pair of my shoes and my husband's hold two pair of his. It fits great in my suitcase and if it's too full, the carrying handle is great for carrying it back and forth. Can't wait to make more. They would make great gifts as they are not just for shoes. Dirty laundry, separating items of clothing like packing cubes and on and on.
