If you haven’t gotten on the Bionic Gear Bag crazy train, you might just be living under a sewing rock.
Above is my first version of the BGB, and wow-eeeee do I love this bag. So.Darn.Useful. And I ask you, what good is a bag if it is not useful??? My plan is to use this when I travel to my many sewing retreats and “off-site” sewing adventures. Because we sewists love to travel with our gear, but sometimes it is a pain to collect everything we need. The Bionic Gear Bag solves this problem by providing a handy storage receptacle for duplicates of everything you need. Never unpack it, and your chances of arriving somewhere without an essential item are greatly reduced!
Partially packed up, you can see how much it will hold. I have plans to add even more supplies, specifically hand sewing needles and a thimble. And I will probably think of a few other goodies that need to live in this cutie-bag.
Pretty impressive, right? BTW, the prescription bottle is to hold discarded sharps. 😉
All zipped up, and yes, everything shown on the table in the image above really IS inside that little package. Crazy how much fits in it!
If you get as excited as I am about this bag, there are loads of fun resources to help you through the construction process. I won’t say it is hard; honestly, once the pieces are cut out and the interfacing is fused the hard work is over IMHO.
