Needed something to store my Spectrum Noir pens in that would allow me to carry them to and from craft meetings with out having two many bags. got the bag for £3 was full of car wash stuff that hubby has got to use and i always take mine to the car wash.  and found some plastic from hubbies stock of bits and bobs to make the partitions.  its not neat but it works just fine for what i wanted just need to wait now till Crafters Companion bring out its own storage solution.
