On my last trip to Ikea, I spotted a set of inexpensive drawstring bags. At the time, I had just returned from traveling and had been thinking about how I'd like to have a better way to organize my suitcase. I took the bags home and decided to make them a little cuter. I printed a simple prickly pear cacti garden along the bottom! The next time I travel, I'll use 'em for shoes or socks or dirty clothes. They are light weight, so they are great for helping with organizing without adding more bulk or weight to my bag. Plus, now they are covered with cacti.... one of my favorite things. You can do the same! Read on to learn how.Read More
