Store in Style with Amy Barickman's Fold & Go Folio
I don’t know about you but I love practical projects with purpose and of course a bit of style! Amy Barickman has shared some fun options for her Fold & Go Folio pattern. Store tools, jewels and tech essentials in the two sizes that are included in the pattern.
Organize Your Jewelry
This pattern is the perfect pouch for storing and traveling with jewelry. Sew one for yourself or make as a gift! The felt needle keep can double as an earring holder. Make a matching set with the small and large version. Add embellishments from your button and bead stash.
Necklaces can be secured on fabric bands and earrings and bracelets can be stored in two sizes of drawstring bags.
Organize Tech Essentials
Charging cords, earbuds and memory cards, these little items are now part of our everyday lives. The Fold & Go Folios are a perfect solution for keeping your tech essentials safe.
Organize Sewing Tools
Whether storing hand sewing notions or accessories for your sewing machine like feet or needles, I love all the options for storage the pattern provides. You can customize the design of your folio with two different sizes of drawstring bags as well as pockets for tools. This Fold & Go Folio was made from a damaged vintage quilt top in my collection.
The small version works well for organizing all your pins and needles.
Do you have orphan blocks in your stash? This is a great project for modern or vintage blocks!
