This Compact Bag Has 10 pockets, an Ironing Pad and Room for a Small Ruler and Cutting Mat!
Packing up tools and supplies for a quilting class or retreat can be a real chore. It can be especially annoying when you want to head out for an impromptu quilting session with friends. Fortunately, there’s a stylish solution that you can make yourself.
The “Quilters Organizer Bag” was cleverly designed by Quiltessa Natalie to organize all your quilting essentials. It has room for everything you’ll need and is organized so that each item is easy to find. No more searching around in a bag to find something that sank to the bottom!
The bag has a detachable shoulder strap and can easily be carried along with your machine and purse. It can also be used as a travel bag and a cosmetic bag.
One great feature of this bag is that it can be unzipped and laid flat for easy access.
The bag measures a compact 14″ x 7″ x 7″. There’s space for a 12″ x 6″ ruler and small cutting mat under the pockets. The interior of the bag is lined with aluminized coating fabric (such as Insul-Bright), so you can use it as an ironing pad with a miniature iron for your small projects.
Vary the look of the bag by choosing a favorite fabric for the outside. You could also give it a patchwork look by using orphaned quilt blocks set into the predominant fabric.

PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
