(See page 2 for the tutorial link!  Grin)

Happy Easter to everyone! Cool

This is my new soft sewing bag.  It has two kinds of fabric and is quilted.



And another view:



I found instructions for this in a book I recently borrowed from the local library, "A Passion for Patchwork".  It's called a 'soft sewing bag' as it is meant to "house" threads, needles and other sewing stuff.  But actually it can be used for a variety of things...as a case for pencils, make-up, toiletries, etc.  I am even thinking of converting it into a small shoulder bag by adding d-rings and a long strap or it can be a handbag if I added handles instead.  Just the right size to hold my wallet and mobile phone. 

Comments appreciated! Kiss

That came out stunning!  I just searched my library system and we don't have that book  Sad but it reminds me a lot of another one I saw online somewhere so all is not lost!

You did a fantastic job with it!

Your bag looks great.  What are the dimensions?

I bet you could find a lot of uses for it - not just sewing!

Really cute and wonderful fabric choices. Your zipper looks perfect. Great job!

Hi again and thanks for the lovely comments!  Wink

The finished bag is about 8 1/2" long, 4 1/2" wide and 4" deep.  The measurements were taken in its "stuffed" state (as in the photos).

To all those with no zipper foot...just wanted to say that all is not lost!  I don't have one at the moment but still managed to make a decent zipper attachment with this project.  I do plan, however, to purchase one real soon.

Anyone interested in a tutorial?  Just ask and I will try my best to deliver!

Thanks again! Grin

You need to ask if someone wants a tutorial?  Shocked This is Craftster right? We looooove our tutorials - for some of us it's how we learned to sew!! (me included.  I owe almost everything to Craftster tutorials and tv shows!)
I would love to see one ... and I would make it as soon as I could!  I love to make functional stuff!

That is so cute. I would love a tute -- am looking for a pattern to make a bag for a man and this would be great. You did a really nice job, may have to think it through and see what I can draft up --- but posting a tute would be so much easier.
