That’s right, I am sewing plastic bags. I am putting kits together for my MIU Metal Magic workshop for Long Beach. In the kits I include 4 mini brads with all the other supplies. During my last workshop a few people lost a brad when opening the kit.
I looked to see if I had some little bags to put the brads in this time, but couldn’t find any. My solution was to make little packets from a gallon size ziplock bag. I sewed two vertical divisions every two inches.
Put four brads in each section and sewed two horizontal divisions creating a grid of little packets.
I cut each packet apart with a rotary cutter. These do not need to be sturdy bags, since they will be placed in the kit and opened at the workshop.
It is surprising how many hours goes into preparing for a one hour workshop.
This afternoon, I pack up the kits.
