Sewing: Peek A Boo bags

I just finished making these cute bags:
Peek A Boo 

I found the tutorial for making these cute bags at Make it Perfect. I could think of a hundred uses for these type bags that I just started sewing.  A co-worker is having a baby boy next month and I thought these bags would make a great baby shower gift.

The Process:

Although I'm not a fast sewer, they are easy to make.  I'll have to time myself to see how long it takes me.  Usually, if I'm making more than one item of the same design, I like to do all the cutting at one time.  So it's hard for me to judge how long one bag takes me.  I used a thinner clear vinyl than what Toni recommended because it's what I had on hand but when I run out of it I'll purchase thicker vinyl.  
Aren't they cute... I'm going to make some for my upcoming trip to Europe.  They might help me keep my life organized!  Truly, a wishful thought!  I also want to try making some with Velcro closure; I'll post my results when I make one.
 I want to say a big "Thank You" to Toni at Make it Perfect for sharing with her readers her sewing pattern/tutorial. This makes her an awesome lady!  She also has an etsy shop, go check it out and see if she's made something you can't live without!  All her items are so cute; I can't wait till I have a new little one in our family (my brother is having a baby soon) to shop in her etsy's shop.  
What would you use these bags for?

Kim, these are not only adorable but also very practical. I think you'll appreciate your new-found organizational packing genius with these.

I think they'd be great arts/crafts bags for kids to keep things together but still let you see w/o having to open them and go through everything.

I can't tell the size, but if they're small enough they might be great for organizing hair ties or even if they are larger a few of them can be used and hung on hooks to organize all the little girl hair things.

You're just 'sew' creative!

These are adorable bags. I wish I could sew, I really do. You might have actually inspired me to break my sewing machine out of its still sealed (after purchasing it two yrs ago) box!

These are really cute, Kim! I'm like you, I cut out lots of bags at one time and sew assembly line style. It just works well for me. Thanks for sharing these bags!

Oh, these are so adorable! I bookmarked the tutorial. I may have to start sewing again. I would definitely use one for a kids church bag. My kids would also love playing with these. Oddly enough, my 2 and 5-year-old are highly entertained by stuffing a bunch of toys in a bag and carrying the bag around. Janae
