We’ve all been there; Christmas morning comes and you’re left with a pile of discarded wrapping and new toys with accessories scattered across the floor. I love to solve problems with sewing, this was a challenge I had to take.
Challenge: Create products to solve the Christmas morning loot mess that is reusable and fun to use.
Solution: Two amazingly simple fabric organization vessels.
- First up Controller Cozies.
- My kids love Legos, Fingerlings, POP figures, etc… You name it they’ve collected it. Toys with tiny parts or accessories inspired these bags; with a tear drop shape to cradle earphones or console gaming controllers on one side while holding some of the smaller straight edged items like Legos on the other. As shown I also made it easy to separate each kid’s items with a draw string that can be hung on hooks. The flannel lining allows for a soft touch for electronics.

- Reversible Cloth Bowls
- Again a soft reusable solution to the glut of paper waste we see each holiday season. These pouches expand into a fabric box ready for anything from candy to art supplies. The drawstring makes the box close without need for extra wrapping.
- Just fill, pull the drawing tight and give. You can even turn it inside out for a different look. Shown here in the three available styles:
Country Cream Forest
Red Reindeer Flannel
Fabrics subject to availability.
Comes in a set of 2 coordinating bowls.
