what do you mean by a bag, like a case?

if so, then they’re actually pretty easy to make. Just get some foam (the green stuff at joanns works) and a case. can be any kind. I like hard cases personally (home depot has a nice metal case for 25 bucks). but a laptop bag or something else would work too.
Also good to have is a huntz tomato paste can.

step 1: cut the foam to fit in your case
step 2 (optional but recomended): plan out your case with yoyos. as is, put them, or similarly sized things over the foam where you want them to be.
step 3: empty your tomato paste can, and cut off the rim part. you want it to be sharp.
Step 4: Dip your tomato paste can in soap water for lubrication, and cut out a hole where you want a yoyo to go.
Step 5: do this until you have all of your holes. for larger diameter (offstring) yoyos, I found a campbell’s soup can worked well.
step 6 (optional): you can dye your foam if you want. (I think black foam looks better than white or green, so I opted to do this)

for my home depot case, I actually got another thinner peice of foam for the lid, and cut out a spot for a tackle box. using some velcro, I can keep the tackle box there. Inside it, I have string, spacers, bearings, jimmy hats/z stacks/hub stacks, etc.

I got a case from target and foam from hobby lobby. the swss army laptop case i have can hold over 20 throws, a lot of accesories, trick books, stickers, and pretty much anything else.

They have foam at hobby lobby? what kind and how expensive is it?

And by what kind I mean is it spongy, hard, etc…

go to the fabrics section and it’s high density polyester foam. you can get it in various sizes too. ;D

Or, you could carry your yoyos around the classy way.
Just get a chinese food plastic take-out bag. (The kind that say thank you).
And dump your yoyos in there and carry them as such.

To prevent dings, throw in a washcloth.

Done.

And everyone will respect you for it.

I do it all the time.

I’ve tried his before. To be honest, I find that a cotton ball works just as well as a washcloth, and is cheaper.

Also, what’s the best place to pick up a fairly large sized case? I want one that will hold at least 15 yoyos.
