Welcome to the Quilting Board!
It is so cute!!!
enjoy your life...it's the only one you have!!!
At this web address you can download this booklet. It contains (among others) a tute on making a simple zippered bag. I have made a few of them. It can be made any size and could be made with an embroidered strip like that pattern shows. There are tons of patterns on this site for just about anything you want to sew.

What an adorable sewing bag! I am glad you found the source for it and I am sure your friend will just love getting it for her birthday.
I have many finished cross stitch as unfinished objects that would adapt for something like this. What a great idea.

If you are looking for something to put sewing/embroidery items in, I have done the Lazy Girl "perfect pouches" with batting so I can stick my embroidery needles into the lining. Also one I am getting ready to make is from This & That called"clutter bug". Hope some of these great ideas work for you!
