When I go for my walks, I always end up carrying my cell phone - what a pain. I remembered that a few years ago I ordered a cell phone bag pattern from quiltsmart. The pattern is right on the interfacing. This went together so quick. I put an extra long strap on it so I can wear it across the body. I hope you like it!
There is a pocket for my cell phone and a pocket that holds my medical id card, or you could put a driver license in there.
I used Craftapple's diaper bag pattern and made this for my soon to be here grandson. I wanted to use a fabric that wasn't too babyish, so I used marbles and jacks from the Toybox Fabric Collection by Johnnie Kawan.
I would appreciate any comments - good or bad. Thanks!
The outside pocket
The larger inside pocket (and a covered zip lock bag I included)
The divided inside pocket that holds bottles and the cell phone packet
The main flap closes with a magnetic snap and the cell phone pocket has Velcro on the flap. It really holds a lot. I filled it with bottles, pacifiers, baby wipes, lotion, ect.... and there was still room.
Thank you to the crafter that posted the link to this pattern. I used fusible fleece on the outside fabric. The lining is just simple black ripstop nylon. I added a pocket to one side to keep my water mix-ins and splenda. I hope you like it. Comments, good or bad, are appreciated.
I got this idea from a post here, but I'm sorry I can't find it right now to give credit.
I don't have as much thread as others, but at least it's all in 1 place now. If my supply grows, I can always reconfigure and add more screws. I found more thread after I took these photos, it was stuffed everywhere. No wonder I kept buying the same colors!
I made this dvd player bag for my grandson to take on vacation. He picked the camo for the outside and the lining is US Marine Corp logos. I put fusible fleece on the outside fabric and the lining. It holds the dvd player and 4 dvds, has pockets for the car adapter, ac adapter & battery. I hope you like it and leave a comment (good or bad).
A simple drawstring book bag I made for my 2 year old grandson. It's smaller than most bags like this since he is only 2 and I didn't want him tripping over it. I'm didn't want the strings long, but I made them too short - so back to the fabric store for more cording to redo it. But otherwise, I'm really pleased with how it came out.
This is the mini charmer tote from quilts illustrated. I used alien invasion charm pack from moda. It's a little shorter than it's supposed to be because I didn't follow the directions (was I supposed to read those!) Will have to get a button for the front pocket, but I still love it. Hope you like it too.
It looks a little crooked laying down, but it's actually straight (that must have been an accident!)
