Traveling with your Crafts?

Hallo to all the crafters out there looking for inspiration / solutions and ideas for storing crafting goodies.  Once again, it’s Hazel all the way from Sunny SA and today we are traveling with our crafts!

I don’t know about you but crafting is a lot of fun to me so I wouldn’t dream of going anywhere without something to keep my hands busy.  A few years ago my mum had breast cancer and had to go through a series of chemo and radiation treatments.  It was very traumatic to all but I immediately packed a smocking kit that went with every single day.  Yes!  I did finish about 10 dresses in the 3 month period and had to give them all away because they reminded me of this negative period in our lives BUT I learned that if you keep busy, the battle is half won.

So, I hopped around Blogland to see what I can get to inspire you to travel with your arts / crafts.  First up – the Scrappers:

And the Knitters / Embroidery enthusiasts:

This one would be perfect for my smocking kit:

What about the artists out there?

 And never forget to pack some crafting fun to keep the kids busy:

And one that can be used for about anything – a Hanging Toiletry bag!

 This one I found on Etsy.  No longer available for purchase but still – a great idea.

And I made one myself.  Hop over to my blog to see all my alternative uses for it:

And this is the total ultimate:

This post has DIY instructions. I’m off to get hold of my husband!  Now I know what I want for my upcoming birthday!

Thanks for traveling around Blogland with me today. I hope you have gained a few more ideas for storing your favorite goodies.  Have a great day and please check back as my contributors and I have lots more to share with you right here on Craft Storage Ideas.

  1. Hi There,
    I can’t say how much I love your site. I absolutely love storage and especially for my crafty stash (although I need to get round to using it as I am converting the spare room into my craft room – bit by bit). I so love seeing very ones craft rooms.
    The only problem is that I am located in the UK. You taunt me with all the magical goodies available in the US. I get all excited about something and then find they either don’t ship to the UK or the delivery cost is stupidly high.
    Perhaps one day you could look into making a craft room in the UK and how much it costs.
    Thanks and keep up the great work 🙂

    1. Hi Jo
      Thank you so much for your reply. I’m from South Africa and we don’t get ANYTHING out here. You will see in the posts that I do that I try to get “normal” stuff to use for craft storage. I don’t think I own one single custom made craft storage item. Look around – I’m sure you’ll get stuff that can be adapted and come at a reasonable price. Hardware stores are a treasure trove! Have fun!
