How do I repurpose velcro bags?


Has anyone come up with an idea to reuse/repurpose the velcro bags that sheets and pillow cases come in? I have several and I keep thinking there must be a good use, but nothing comes to mind.

????? Thank you for ideas!!!

    Instead of spending money trying to transform them, I would suggest donating them to a kindgergarten or elementary school. Teachers will put them to good use storing arts and crafts materials, costumes or dress up items, or various manipulatives for their students. More often than not there is just no budget for these types of 'organizing' resources.

    If you travel, they make great storage for smaller items. Great to put shoes in, keeps them clean.

    Fabric scraps, feminine products, make up hair accessories, store out of season items. wet swimsuits.

  • They are great for travel - put your shoes in them, or reuse them as gift bags.

    They are a perfect size for a pair of shoes. When you are on the road you can have your shoes in the suitcase without fear of them contaminating your clothing.

    If you have kids, make a "go bag" of things to keep them busy on a road trip.

    Use them to put your sheets & pillowcases back in when not in use, they will be in 1 neat bundle.

    Hi Laura: I use mine to store out of season clothing, like t-shirts, shorts, etc. Some I use to put finished craft projects in. I make knit hats, toys, blankets, etc., for Children's Hospital and store those things in these bags. That way I can see what is in there, and so can the folks at the hospital. Sometimes I put magazines, that I want to keep and look at later, in them. Mostly seed catalogues :)

    Good luck

    Thank you all for the input. You seem to be hometalking about the plastic, zippered bags. I have no problem using those. I’m asking about the velcro closure bags that are made from the same fabric as the sheets and pillow cases. Too small for shoes, etc. I’m attaching a pic this time. Sorry for the confusuion. Thank you!!

    Hello that’s a great question. I find extra bags or netted laundry bags to be useful when packing to sort the various items of clothing separately in smaller tightly compressed suitcases.

  • If you have kids, you could use them to store small stuffed animals. Or, use them to store t-shirts, blankets, towels. Or, another idea is to use them to keep dust off items you may have in storage.
