    Ruler tote

    This was a project that I had signed up for at my guild's quilt conference last fall - unfortunately, there was only myself and one other gal that was interested so they canceled the class. The instructor hosts a Tuesday sewing circle and said that she would share & teach me the pattern whenever I wanted to attend - well, five months later I finally got around to it. I made it large enough to hold my 12" Shape Cut ruler, which actually measures 16" wide. I won the turquoise fabric at a guild meeting and used it to make the inside pocket for long/narrow rulers as well as binding the top edge. The smallest outside pocket is perfect for my binding tool and triangle trimmers as well as their instruction folders. Nice to have most of my rulers in one place and protected.

    Oh, this is cute! I haven't thought of storing my rulers like this. I love the colors. I wonder if there's a pattern?
    Why do I keep trying to find the "like" button?

    Love this ruler bag and that turquoise fabric is too darn cute. I have a mat bag but never thought of having a back just for rulers. Great idea - I think I will have to make one for myself. Thanks for sharing.

    What a great idea. A way to store and protect them.
