    Bionic gear bag to match my sewing room

    Here and there, when I have time, I keep trying to make more stuff in coordinating fabrics for my sewing room. Why not? It's fun, and I enjoy looking at it.

    Yesterday (and today) I made my 1st Bionic Gear Bag. Love it, already have 2 more cut out ready to sew!

    Why shouldn't your sewing room coordinate with your pleasures.

    Whoa, baby! That is one good looking bag. Thanks to your post, I just purchased the pattern from Craftsy as I think it will make fabulous Christmas presents. The pattern states it is a beginner's level, but I'm not sure I am up to that many zippers!

    Thanks all. You can get the pattern on Craftsy:

    I would definitely not rate it as a beginner pattern. It was one of the more difficult things I've ever sewn. But it's doable, just take your time. And check Youtube for Bionic Gear Bag tutorials.

    I think that is the prettiest one I have ever seen! I have this pattern, but, haven't had the time yet to make it.

    Everything you have made in that room is so pretty.

    I like how everything coordinates in your sewing room! I purchased the same pattern on Craftsy at least a year ago and it was called the "sewtogether bag". Now I see that Craftsy is also selling this "bionic gear bag" which is exactly the same bag. I wonder if this is a "copy" or if the designer changed the name of the pattern?

    Different designer. Slightly modified. The BGB is larger and has more pockets.

    I love your bag- and all the accessories especially your machine cover. I need to make covers for all my machines. I know it doesn't require a pattern really, just some inspiration like you just gave me!!!

    You inspired me to post a picture of mine. I love how yours is so elegant... mine is just plain goofy! I collect cow items, so I used this red cow print from my stash, and an assortment of black-and-white fat quarters for the inside parts. The little bag in front is the coordinating "Dumpling Dish" pattern... it holds my Wonder Clips.

    I would certainly not classify this pattern as "beginner". I ended up watching the author's YouTube videos several times; they are very helpful. The thing is, you have to take this one nice and slow. I'm generally a speedy sewer but I had to really reign myself in on this project. It takes a lot of thought and planning. Not trying to discourage anyone from making it, but it's not a make-it-tonight and use-it-tomorrow kind of project!!

    Bionic Gear Bag

    I too have made this bag. I have made 4 so far, but took a long break. Yes it is do-able, but not really a beginner bag. Would love to see this pattern updated though, taking out all the personal information.
