Something I would like to make- Hexie Travel Kit

I was browsing the  blogs this morning and came across this tutorial on Bonnie Hunter's site.  It was a link where someone else made the tutorial and Bonnie now has a page to save these on for others to find and use.  She is an organized lady and I love it.  I'm getting better at adding links too.
English Paper Piecing Travel Kit Tutorial.  I want something like this that is more compact and less likely to not have all my needs.  When I go out to sew I've been taking my Slimline box with my paper piecing supplies.  It can come open and I have a tendency to over stock it.

Now for working on my hexes at home I did find in my stash a carrier of sorts that I bought years ago and couldn't find a good use for.  Now it will be my paper piecing organizer for home.
Front of organizer
 The front side has the 3 pockets that are made in such a way they extend out to give you depth to add supplies.  At the top I have hexes in groups of 12 for the next ring on the flower.  The second pocket holds papers and snack bags with sets to make flowers.  The bottom pocket holds my sewing kit, which includes my slimline threader, scissors, finger pincushion, needles, thimbles, and thread.
Back of the organizer
 The back of the organizer has this big pocket, so I chose to put the sandpaper board for drawing on the fabric with my hexes template, a picture from Google search of a quilt I want to copy mine by, and the pieces I started putting together.  There are a few group of hexes that need to be added.
Hanging on a door knob
Now I have had this for a few years as I said and I can't remember where it came from, but I think in Lewisville or some other shop in North Dallas.  I really don't know for sure.  I won't be rolling it up, it doesn't lend itself to that, but it will sure beat the 3 or so containers I did have all this stuff in.  I don't know, it's scary me getting this organized. lol
