    Charger bag/carrier

    Hi Fellow Quilters,
    I'm not sure if this is the right section to be asking this but I'll give it a go. I am after something to make to keep all our camera and phone chargers in order and together while we are traveling. We always seem to have chargers everywhere but can never find the one we need when we need it. Any ideas?

    Good luck! We left ALL of ours at home on our last trip!!! No idea on how to fix that. Other than make sure to pack them myself! Sorry not to be a help.

    Find a pattern for a "make-up bag" and put a strip on the inside with stitching ever few inches (pockets) to put the cords in. I made a pouch with inside slots or pockets for my nephew to store and carry his hot wheels cars in. There are lots of ideas on pinterest.

    I have an extra set that I keep just for travel. That way I just have to grab the bag and go.

    I use a drawstring bag for all that stuff. There is a free pattern on Jeni Miller's blog "In Color Order". It is easy to make and I've loved having it. http://www.incolororder.com/2011/10/...-tutorial.html

    I made a pile of these as Christmas gifts/stocking stuffers. http://leafytreetopspot.blogspot.com...om-fabric.html And you can make them any size. I did have a couple of requests for some that were a little larger for laptops.

    Better to do something imperfectly, than nothing perfectly.
    Done is better than perfect.

    The pouch on MSQ - you can adjust size to your needs.

    I made the snap bag using the tape measures. Two matching ones for each device, one for the camera and one for the charger. Before I sewed up the sides I sewed a piece of velcro on the outside of each bag so that the bags could be velcro together. When we get ready to leave you better have two bags that match, hopefully velcro together. If not, well it's not my problem. I supplied the bags it's their responsibility to get their stuff together.

    Love this. Don't even have to get mixed up. Just keep attached while unwound. Super idea. Then throw in pouch.

    This is the tutorial that I used to make my travel caddy when I went to Hawaii. Works like a charm!

    Jenny Doan on MSQC just came out with a tutorial for making zippered pouches that would work great for storing chargers.

    I plug all of mine into a power strip and I made a little zippered bag for the strip and the cords. I use it at home and just unplug and go when I am traveling. I have pockets with the cords that do not plug into an outlet and I label those.

    I was going to suggest Pattern pile but this is a much better option. Thank you nananurse.
