Patterns

When I go to Quilt Shows I tend to buy Patterns. They come home and sit on my sewing table for a few days, then they get moved to a shelf, then into one of those cardboard holders for magazines where I tend to put 'new' patterns whither cut from magazines, printed from the computer or bought.
I decided to see what was in there today, remind myself of what had taken my fancy a few months ago, discard or keep? I found a Bag pattern, one to be made for the weekend retreat I'm going to in August. Time to get it made and that's what I did today.




It a little bit hard to see what is what, with the cheater cloth I used ,but each side folds and is held by a button and when they are unfastened, this is what it is for.




When closed it carries my iron and when open it's an ironing pad. The silver cloth for the inside was included with the pattern. The other patterns went back into the holder for another day.
