Blogging Gadgets Organizer

With A Blast: Blogging Gadgets Organizer {keep your stuff together!}  #crafts  #sewing  #organizing #storage


I am usually an organized person - that is " I know where {abouts} my stuff is", but lately everything seems to be all over the place.  Now, look at this following photo and let me know if this looks familiar !


With A Blast

Yep, this is some of my gadgets and so on, which I use daily {or I should say - ALL DAY}, therefore it has to be close to me, but ... do you know how quickly a small flashdrive can disappear?  The other day the housekeeper picked one up and asked me whether it was empty and could she throw it away !!??!! Really, I nearly burst an artery - she thought it was some sort of lip balm, and as she couldn't see anything inside, it would have ended in the trash, was I not in the room at the time.

There and then I decided that, at least my gadgets I use for my blog, has to be more organised and not just thrown on the closest side table.


With A Blast

I started with a piece of stretch denim fabric and cut a piece of 30cm {12"} X 40cm {16"} - sorry no pic.
Above I have already folded the fabric in half and ironed the fold nicely into place.

With A Blast

I then sewed a seam all around the rectangle and folded the bottom half {which will be the side with the dividers} once again - this section is now around 10cm {4"} from bottom to the original center fold ironed.

Above you can see better what I mean.
 I placed my most used gadgets on the fabric and made very light marks { X } on how wide the dividers should be - ironed them into place {to make sewing easier} I allowed a little on each divider to ease folding {rolling} up when done. 

If you are curious what my most used blog gadgets are - from left to right 1) External Internet USB 2) Flashdrive with all my downloaded e-books - crafts & recipes 3) Another one, but this one stores each and every photo of my blog - ONLY photos 4) Alternative External Internet USB 5) Cheap cellphone I use to re-charge my airtime for the Internet USB's 6) And of course a small calculator. 

Also, I placed my goodies to the top, because some of these are quite small and to try "dig" them out of a narrow divider would drive me crazy! {see next pic}

With A Blast

So, now I have sewed the dividers which is marked X - the actual dividing section
The O indicates where I sewed a "shorter" divider for the smaller gadgets in order for them not slipping to the bottom and safe me from digging them out.
On the far left I kept a large pocket open for future gadgets or something I might already have and just forgot about.

With A Blast

The flap was sewed and the corners cut down a bit.

Some prettying up - I used one of my favorite stencils and painted two roses in a yellowish-gold color - ironed it between paper to set the paint.

With A Blast

Last but not least - I added a bright yellow cord to the back of my organizer
{Best to first roll up and then check to see where you need to sew the cord onto the fabric}
