Quilters organizer bag

This bag 14"x7"x7" has TEN pockets and ironing pad inside. Long detachable shoulder strap makes it easy and convenient to carry along with your sewing machine and purse in other hand. This bag is a perfect organizer for your quilting (or other) tools and supplies for classes and retreats. Separating zipper allows you to open it all the way and lay flat! Four pairs of snaps on each side make it keep box-shaped, open flat at one side only or flat all the way! The interior of the bag lined up with aluminized coating fabric, so you can use it as an ironing pad for your small projects when using miniature iron. Elastic band on the side of one of the pockets will keep your pencils and other marking supplies in close vicinity and well organized. The other two pockets have additional exterior mesh pockets. The medium long pocket is divided in half for two smaller pockets to keep spools, clips and other small items. And there is enough space for your 12" x 6" ruler and small cutting mat UNDER the pockets. Love this bag? Make one and share your ready bag here on Craftsy as a ready project for this pattern! Thanks in advance! Happy sewing! Natalie Quiltessa
