Fridays

On Fridays I go to Somerset  patchwork shop and sit and chat and sew with about 16 - 20 other ladies. We laugh, sometimes too loud for the customers, and have a great day. Karen, who owns the shop, shows us what gadgets, templates, patterns and fabrics are new. Last week she had a delivery of bags for holding our thread,scissors etc and I bought one. A great little travelling bag. It comes with foam on both sides of the bag so that they can be covered. On the side with the pocket I used my Feedsack fabrics and on the other side I used a X stitch I made years ago but was ideal in theme and size. Here are some photos to see what it now looks like.




 
 
and the inside with lots of compartments.

That is a wonderful idea to make your own case designs. I always see things like that in the sale aisles for make up bags, might just work.

Very cute! Looks really nice for taking along to sewing groups! I am forever looking for the perfect system for multiple projects. My solution is a covered binder.

Gorgeous work, and so handy on the inside.

i have been using one of these for a while now and only just realised there was a pocket on the "bottom side" ... Duh!! I t just always sits with the pocket on the bottom so i never see it. T'would make more sense to have put it on the "top" . Can i ask how you attached your lovely panels? were you able to stitch through the green foam or di you glue them?

I love that it could be personalised and it looks great with the cross stitch.
