Sew Together Bag
It happens almost every class I teach, every workshop I attend. Someone pulls out there well-organized, pretty, handmade Sew Demented’s Sew Together bag. (Usually I end up asking them to borrow a tool at some point because they know where there’s is.) A couple of weeks ago I took a break from the have to’s and did a little want to sewing, whipping up my own Sew Together bag. I’ve always managed to remember most of what I need to bring when I head out the door to sew off campus, but having a dedicated bag like this makes it all so much easier. There are handy zippered pockets for everything I need, a small pincushion to hold straight pins, as well as a wool square to hold hand sewing needles. It’s the perfect size to hold my rotary cutter, sewing stiletto, thread snips, and related tools. If only I could collapse my quilting rulers and stuff them in there, I’d be golden.
I used a Denyse Schmidt fat quarter to make the outside and binding, and Carolina Chambray for the inside. The outside zipper closure doubles as the handle and I’m proud to claim 4 successful zipper installations while making this bag!
You can find this bag pattern on Craftsy. Just wanted to share because it’s such a useful bag!
