    I wanted to make a bag for taking my notions to and from my monthly Sewing Saturday group (all day marathon sewing) and this is what I created.
    I love this bag!

    I blogged about it here... http://yarn-or-fabric.weebly.com/1/p...urday-bag.html

    but I'm sure you guys don't want to go there to read about it, so here's the quick run down...

    It's 13x6 x7"tall
    I used Stiffy from Long Creek Mills instead of Timtex
    Hmmm.... what else? Oh yeah, the questions everyone is going to ask...
    the main fabric came from Hancocks. I bought it last year. I'm not sure if they still make it or not.
    The green crackly exterior fabric was from Walmart of all places. I got that last year as well.
    The interior & pocket trim fabric I wish I could remember where that came from. It's really cool and I'm running out of it. :(

    Most importantly.. the tutorial... http://sew-whats-new.com/profiles/bl...y-sewing-caddy
    I added a second exterior pocket section so there were pockets across the front and back of it... I also didn't do the whole make a hole and turn ... I folded the top pieces down and topstitched. I think it makes for a nicer bag ;)

    Yup. Nutshell :D

    I really love this bag. As you can tell, it holds A LOT
    I can not tell you how much is in there. I just literally picked everything up and threw it in there at the end of the night!

    Nice, I have been looking for one with lots of pockets that will stand on it's own. Gotta make me one!

    I forgot to bring the licorice with me Saturday - but dark chocolate - especially raisinettes and hot tamales are a staple for me when I quilt....

    I still have to make some scissor cases & some other small baskets and whatnot for sorting things. I'll definitely get it all together one of these days - this was a great first step though - and a huge improvement over just throwing everything in a fabric grocery bag! :D

    That is awesome. Do you think it would be hard to add height to it? It is exactly the type of bag I want to make for a friend to take to work.

    I really like all of the pockets. You're right, a couple of small matching bags will be a great addition to your organization. Love your fabric!

    Okay, it's fabulous! I need one to take all the stuff to the sew-in retreat weekend in Bedford for the Military Barracks Quilt Project; if I send fabric you'll have it made and shipped back to me by Nov. 4th, right? :-D ;)

    Thanks for this tote. I love it & downloaded it so I can make one for me. It seems to be not too large, but holds a boatload of stuff - my kind of bag!

    Thanks.
