    :-D :-D :-D :-D I was thinking of the name for the bag the Indians used to keep thier arrows in and so I came up with this to put my long rulers in. I keep knocking them off the table every time I get up during the night and now with them hanging up I won't be doing that any more. This is fabric I found at the Goodwill last Summer with sewing themed print on it. Apropriate fabric for sewing items. There was 3 yards of it. I winged it. Enjoy! Huggies, Fay

    It's completely lined with the same fabric. Glad you like it. Now I just need to perfect it. Huggies, Fay

    Fay, I am going to be making a quiver for mine for when I go to sewing group.. I'm going to have different slots for the different rulers... Yeah. I know.. when I am actually going to do that, right??

    Yours is fabulous - and a great name for it as well!

    Great idea to keep them organized AND out of the way.

    Very clever idea. How long are your longest rulers? That picture makes the quiver look a lot longer than 26". I have never found a ruler longer than that. Then again have never really looked for one either.

    What a fabulous idea ... I think there might be many quivers made in the coming weeks!

    My longest rulers are my 9 and 10 degree wedge rulers and my other ruler is about the same lengh. So the quiver is a little bit shorter than the rulers so I can see which ruler I'm going for when I want to use one. Have a great day, Huggies, Fay.... I don't need to make another for the rest of my rulers as I have them on a rack.
