    I saved those and cut them up to use as templates. I love the idea of using them for fabric storage - are they too airtight, though?

    Those bags are very handy, indeed.

    Yes! I save and use those too! The last ones I received were not zippered, but were all cloth and had a velcro closure on the flap...nice! I also make storage bags out of scraps occasionally. That being said, all those bags and all those projects stored away has not helped me one iota to get anything completed. They look nice and neat though.

    I enjoy these also as we are full-time in our 36' RV. As I work on a project and am gathering material for another one, I can maximize my space as they are soft and malleable. I would go crazy if I couldn't see what was in each bag and had to open a container to find out what was in it.

    Since fabric need to breathe, could you just punch holes in the corners of each side? Same for the plastic lettuce containers...
