Perfect for Quilting, Hand Sewing and Much More!
This well-designed bag began as a way for a young girl to store her drawing books and sketch pads. However, it works beautifully for quilting and sewing projects, as well as for many other uses (keep this in mind when you need a special gift!).
The interior has a zippered pouch, a mesh zippered pocket and elastic loops for scissors, pens and other odds and ends. The bottom of the bag has an elastic buckle strap to hold quilt blocks, rulers, books and more. Foam and other interfacings give the bag structure, while a large zipper allows it to open up flat.
Select a beautiful fabric for the outside of the bag and compatible fabrics for the interior. Or, add a pieced block to one side to make the bag uniquely yours. You’ll find several beautiful examples to spark your creativity here.

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!
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
