The Brontë Case is a brilliant organiser bag that packs a punch!

Featuring lots of storage inside it’s fantastic for all ages and all kinds of things to store! There is a central divider inside the bottom of the bag along with two small zipper pockets in the top (sew them with clear vinyl so you can see what’s inside) and a mesh pocket too. The back features a slip pocket thats large enough for a 6.5″ ruler and there’s strap connectors and handles for multiple carrying options.

This bag is useful for so many things! Dolls, Sewing Tools, Hair Supplies, vacations – you name it!
