INTRODUCING: PACK IT IN 2.0
Casey Unrein

We are so excited to announce our brand-new updated pattern, Pack It In 2.0!

Learn more about these handy packing cubes in the Introduction video below and find out what you need to make this project in our A Closer Look video HERE.

ABOUT THE PATTERN.

Get organized, minimize stress, and streamline packing with these handy multi-sized cases.

Constructed of lightweight mesh and quilted fabric, the cases hold their shape and are perfect for sorting and separating all your travel items.

A soft mesh window on top provides breathability and easy identification of contents.

No more digging through the whole suitcase to find the swimsuit and flip flops!

Pack It In 2.0 cases are perfect gifts for anyone who travels or has “stuff” to store.

Small: 3"H x 11"W x 7"D

Medium: 3½"H x 14"W x 10"D

Large: 4"H x 18"W x 13"D

WHAT'S NEW IN THE 2.0?

Pack It In 2.0 is an update of our popular Pack It In pattern which was released in 2016.

The new 2.0 version doesn’t change the design of the cases, but we’ve improved the illustrations and layout to make it easier to read and follow, and filmed an Add-on video to help you with the more unique or challenging aspects of the pattern.

Since the Pack It In 2.0 pattern includes a coupon to get the Add-On Video at no charge, we would recommend that you purchase the new and improved version of the pattern.

CHOOSE YOUR OWN ADVENTURE!

Here are a few ideas for ways you can use these breathable packers in three sizes:

  • Sewing storage — organize fabrics, tools, thread, and notions.
  • Travel — there’s the perfect amount of space for packing clothes, toiletries, and anything else you might need for a weekend or longer. Keep that suitcase organized!
  • Baby — keep your little one’s socks, diapers, onesies, or toys in order.
  • Games — contain board games and their pieces, cards, dice, and more.

Let us know in the comments if you can think of other ways you might use this project!
