Oh yay!!! I found a website that sells my bags, in assorted sizes!

The Box Depot




Clear Vinyl Bags(Pouches)(Zipper Bags)
3.2 Gauge with clear sewn seams, white nylon zipper around top

Sizes:
9" x 12" x 2"
9" x 12' x 3"
9" x 12" x 4"

9" x 11" x 1"
9-1/2" x 11-1/2" x 1-1/4"
9-1/2" x 11-1/2" x 2''
9-1/2" x 11-1/2" x 3"
9-1/2" x 11-1/2" x 4"

11-1/4" x 8-1/2" x 1-1/2"
11-1/4" x 8-1/2" x 2"
11-1/4" x 8-1/2" x 3"
11-1/4" x 8-1/2" x 4"

And larger sizes with the 15" dimension on one side. Check the website.

They seem to be sold in sets only. (set of 10....$5-$7)
Not sure about the strength of 3.2 Gauge vinyl. But we're not using these bags to hold a dozen croquet balls!

I wouldn't purchase a bag that is less than 3-4" in fatness.
So the sizes above that are bolded are the sizes that I'd buy.

Anyway, I can't get over the cheap price!

While those are great for extra yarn, I'm looking for ones big enough to hold comforters!!! The one I've got measures about

15" x 20" x 10"

and it help a twin size comforter. I've been storing my finished lap blankets in it. Any ideas on where to buy these EXTRA big ones??

Thanks (again),

In that case a super large ziplock would work, too.

Jan shared a link on page 2 of this thread, and it also has super-sized vinyl zippered bags:

How's 24 x 27 x 8" for BIG?

I use the Ziploc Flexible Totes to store my outgrown kids' clothes (I have boys 6 years apart so I save all my oldest's clothes "just in case") -- it has mesh across the top and if that doesn't bother you, I think it would hold a comforter easily:

XXL: 2.2 ft. long (26 in.) x 16 in. deep x. 12 in. high



I use Space Bags from Target for my comforters.

Dollyce, those bags are brilliant!

I keep my yarn on shelves, with handmade cardboard dividers to give that "sorted yarn store shelf" look. Not very fancy, but I like the way it looks. I also have some in a dresser, and my least favorite yarn in boxes, in the basement. But my favorite storage is the odds and ends which I put in tall glass bowls (Christmas tree shops, $10 each), sorted by color. It looks really pretty on display, and makes it easy to find the color I need when I'm looking for a bit of color.
