The best toy ever !

During our mid-term trip to France, we came across this great toy called Geomags. It is basically a set of small metal balls and magnet sticks that you can assemble into any 3-D shapes you like. Kids and adults alike started playing with the set and quickly got frustrated once they used up all the pieces in their designs. So… four trips to the toy shop later, we have built enough of a collection to be able to make this :

All these pieces needed a new home, once we took them out of their boxes, so I made a couple of drawstring bags using clear vinyl.

Now everything is neatly stored in the large grey bag. These bits are very heavy and I am hoping that the double seams I did everywhere on this Ikea heavy duty cotton will hold in the long term. Here is the tutorial I used and I got the vinyl from this Etsy shop.

With the leftover fabric, I ended up making another bag for Lucie’s bobbins :
