    I have been playing on my Voyager using muslin. I finally decided that no guts no glory - I needed to quilt on real fabric. So I dug into my stash, and found some busy fabric and quilted it up. I used what I quilted to make a tri-fold sewing kit. I made it three sections about 9 X 12. Two sections have only one zippered compartments - the other one has a small and larger zippered compartments.

    I went ahead and filled it. I messed up one day last summer and ruined a large cutting mat - so I cut a small piece off of it and put it into one of the pockets with one of the small Olfas. I was reasonably pleased with the results.

    What pattern ??? :oops:

    I can write down directions for you - It was kind of a fly by the seat of my pants. A gal in my guild had something like it and I liked it. I decided that it would be a fun thing to have.

    It will take me a day or so to put it tog but I will be happy to do that for you.

    That is a great sewing bag :)
    I've been wanting to make something similar to hold all my tools and whatnot for when I do go to sewing group.
    I think it looks fantastic and a great way to salvage a funked up matte! Awesome recycling!

    Yes - if you call it a pattern. 8-) .A gal at Guild had something similar and I liked it. Several folks have asked for the directions - I will do a Tute I guess on it.

    Speaking of which - does anyone know how to get started "publishing and merchandising" original patterns that we have in the nooks and crannies of our brains?"
