Personalize Your Bag Interior with Elastic Slot Holders


if you ever used or created an wallet or a bag with elastic slot holders, then you know how convenient they can be for storing pens, lipsticks and other small items you want quick access to! It’s also an effective way to keep small, important items from sloshing around in the bottom of your bag.

In the past we’ve included an option for creating elastic slot holders in a couple of our bags such as the Porta-PocketsPlus Purse Insert & the Walkabout Wallet and they’ve been very well received so when I began work on our new Packlets pattern I decided to include them again. But this time I thought, why not up our game and include instructions for how to personalize these elastic slots so they’ll be the perfect size for the very items YOU want to store in them?

The only problem?

It would be a VERY difficult task indeed to include directions for personalizing these elastic slots in the regular pattern instructions for the Packlets, so instead… I decided to make a tutorial Video for this pattern and now, I’m sharing this video with you since it can easily be adapted to many other projects! Just scroll down to access it!


And now…. it’s YOUR turn!

Do you think you’ll be inclined to add elastic slot holders to an upcoming project of yours? And remember, we love reading your comments and answering your questions too, so please feel free to leave your comments and/or questions about this video and these instructions in the space provided below.
