This is basically a long length of fabric, doubled up, with one side interfaced, closed at the width ends and with vertical stitching for pocket partitions. I saw some bag inserts at a shop and tried making my own version with this. It solved my perennial ‘digging into a black hole’ tote bag woe.
The pockets can be transferred between bags as you change bags. Stiffer interfacing makes better inserts.
I used cotton twill which was a remnant from my very first sewn clothing more than eight years ago. It’s an easy fabric to handle. I didn’t use really stiff interfacing in my bag pockets so its on the floppier side. But I love it all the same.
