Cluster Stitch Clutter Bag

Image of the Cluster Stitch Clutter Bag Designed by Julie A. Bolduc

This bag is designed for storing stuff that would ordinarily be clutter. You can use it in the rest room to store small items such as perfume bottles, first aid stuff or anything small that would look cluttered if you don't have a cabinet to keep it in. I have open shelves in my bathroom so I am making a few of these to store the small stuff in. It has a recycled whipped topping container inside for added stability.
