I couldn't find ready-made, suitably sized tool bags, so I made my own to fit neatly inside each tool box. I made mine out of a pair of old blue jeans. Now that I have them, I can't believe how much more I can fit in the tool boxes. Plus, they are easy to fill and store inside each tool box. To keep them mostly waterproof, I enclose each in a gallon-sized zip lock bag. The pattern I used to create the tool bags is available below.

Gregory Bender's thoughts:

Since creating these tool bags, I find that I don't use them simply because they are not waterproof, take a long time to dry out, and keep moisture where I don't want it to be. I now stash all my tools in the bottom of my tank bag. I've also heard that small plastic cosmetic bags and U.S. Army Surplus canteen covers work well, too.
