I made this for a friend who is letting me have a table in her small beauty salon to sell some of my stuff. She crochets & I thought of making her this to carry her projects to & from work.

It's cool because the way it's made, when she is crocheting, the handles flop down out of the way. Here is a close up of the quilted lining I did:


Thanks for looking!

Love it!

Question (and it may be quite obvious), but how on earth do you get your quilt lines so straight?  Do you mark it with an erasable pen/chalk or just use the presser foot to measure?  I did the latter and things eventually went a little wonky.

Thanks kaz814 - I have a Bernina & it comes w/a guide that attaches to my presser foot, it's really neat. I suppose if you don't have a guide, you have to do it the old fashion way w/chalk & a ruler. Some of the lines are wonky, but you can't really tell unless you get out a ruler.

I really like this too.  I don't sew but I've been looking for bag just this shape.  I hope your friend is getting lots of compliments!

Thanks parisgirl. My friend really likes this bag, I believe she keeps it by her chair so she can crochet. I was thinking of making some of these for sale - wasn't sure how popular these would be, but maybe these would sell. Thanks again!

I know what you mean about investing the time and the materials in a project that someone may buy.  I think this is unusual enough and I encourage you.  If I found one of these somewhere I would buy one like it.  I think mainly because the size and shape are so unusual and because I could use it for crochet and paper art supplies.  Stylish and practical!

Thanks, this was meant to carry knitting & crocheting projects on the go. It could be used for other crafting supplies as well. I may add a pocket or 2 to carry all the accessories needed when you're away from home.
