when it is not one large unit. I have used old towels as 'bags' but have
found that what works best for me is bags I've knitted for each item.
Obviously, this won't work for a non-knitter but what got me started on that
was a bag I'd made for a set of bowls to stack inside* out of some spare
stretching 'baby terry' that I had on had. It worked so beautifully that I
decided then and there to switch to a stretching material.
This way our transportational container can be anything I'd like but my
ceramics are well padded, individually, and I can pick & choose what goes to
each event as the theme and our need dictates.
*bottom bowl, then napkin, next bowl, napkin, next bowl, then the stack
placed in the bag.

Thank you for your help and direction. I've already decided to extend this project to a Christmas gift rather than it's originally intended birthday gift.
