    That’s a very cool retreat bag! It doesn’t look that big from your pictures, but it can hold a 18 x 24 mat?? Wow. Thanks for sharing!

      Hi Liz,
      Yup, the last pocket or the one in the very back is one large opening so a mat that size would easily slip in. It’s a pretty neat bag! ~smile~ Roseanne

    Now isn’t that a clever way to store those rulers! Nicely done!

  3. This is a great bag! I made a ruler storage bag years ago but then the cutting mats of the past increased just a little by size and would no longer fit. That is ok though, I bought a nice bag. I do love the homemade ones though!

      Hi,
      I was going to make my own! I thought about making pockets specifically for each ruler. My only concern was that it wouldn’t be stiff enough to hold up under the weight. So, I basically took the easy way out – and the bag can be used as a bag, too. ~smile~ Roseanne

    I’ve been trying to think of a good way to organize my rulers too! I’m not sure this bag would work for me, but I love that you found a solution and it gives me more to think about!

      Hi Jayne,
      I’m not sure if this is the final answer, but it works for now. It is much better than just being stacked in a drawer, and they were taking up too much space in my limited drawers. So, we’ll see! ~smile~ Roseanne

  5. Looks like you have an attractive option for storage. My solution is nails in the wall. It’s not pretty but it works. 🙂

      Hi Cindy,
      That is a great solution – you can easily see what you have. My new sewing table is kind of an island or peninsula actually. I’m not near a wall, and I would hate to have to get UP to select a ruler. ~smile~ Roseanne

    You could even put labels on each pocket to know what is in it at a glance-in case you are in a hurry(like me).

      Hi Vicki,
      HAHA – since I haven’t even removed the layer of “remove before use” stuff – tape/paper/whatever it is, I don’t think that’s a HUGE worry for me. Heehee – that really makes me chuckle this morning! Just the whole picture – oooh, I need that flower shaped ruler . . . hurry . . . which pocket is it in??! Thanks for the giggle. ~smile~ Roseanne
