    Does anyone have either of these bags?

    I am needing a bag to carry my sewing machine in and found these to be cheaper, and maybe more durable than the expensive ones Joann sales. I am just wondering if anyone has either of these and how do they work wirh your machine?
    Thanks for the help.

    Interesting reviews.... the carpenters said it only last a few days but the person using it for sewing said it lasted for years.

    Sounds like it would be worth a try. Doesn't look like there's any padding to protect the machine but I suppose you could wrap it in a small quilt or surround it with your fabric.

    You would have to know the inside dimensions of the bag and if it has any pockets or dividers that would hamper getting your machine into it. Also check out stores like Walmart to see what they have. Lots of suitcases and other travel bags now have wheels.

    I have the second the, the red one. I use it for my handcrank Singer 66 as I don't have a hard sided case that will fit the crank.

    Works well, handles the weight well. I do pad my 66 with a thick bath towel when I use the case.

    I like the fact that this case has the tow behind handle AND it has the individual handles to lift the case in and out of the car. The wheels are very sturdy - the zipper is also heavy duty and has never failed me.

    This case started out life here in a different manner - used it for transporting medical equipment for hubby that was too heavy for me to carry.

    I would give it a try. If you have a Harbor Freight near you, I would take the machine to the store and test drive it...

    I agree that there isn't any padding, so...buy the thin padding that is for sale at Joann and make a custom pouch for the machine to go into before the rolling bag. Or a beach towel....what ever works for you.

    I have th first one. For my Baby Lock Ellure Plus it doesn't work too well. The opening is just exactly the size of the machine and then there are pockets inside that catch the machine. Used it twice and gave up. It does roll nicely. Doesn't have any padding inside

    Looks like a neat deal. I have found that if you check out the tool department you can find a lot of things there that can be used for sewing. I buy those divider boxes and keep my sewing machine feet and such in them. Lot cheaper than most things made for quilters. If it is for quilting it seems to cost more.
