The other day I decided that I needed something better than a shopping bag to cart my cross stitch projects around in, so I sewed this zippered pouch. It turned out pretty well considering I was making it up as I went along, and I only had a couple of hours to do it in because I wanted to use it that night.
The finished bag is approximately 12 and a half inches wide, by 13 and a half long.
It's big enough to hold an A4 clipboard, a 9" hoop and the case full of my threads etc
(My current project is a Christmas stocking for one of my kids in case you're wondering)
It's a bit hard to see, but I put a divider in there to keep my hoop separate from everything else so it doesn't get dirty, and there's a pocket on there to put my highlighter and scissors etc in so they're not just floating around in the bottom of the bag.
And this is how it looks with everything in it!
If I make another one I think I'd make it a half inch taller, because it's just a teensy bit tight to zip up when I put the thread case in (I was silly and forgot to factor in how deep the box is into my measurements). But apart from that it's pretty much exactly what I needed so I'm happy
