I designed the pattern and did the quilting and added interfacing and the liner matches the in-the hoop portfolio I made in a class awhile back.
I am very proud and excited about my new bag. I am taking some classes and going to some open sews now. I needed something to carry my 24" Rulers and Cutting Mat for protection. Plus its a great easy bag to carry with the machine and everything else at the same time.
ADDING MY DIRECTIONS ON HOW I MADE ITSince I posted this I am flattered away! I have had a lot of people asking for my pattern and I do not have one I just made it on my own playing around in the sewing room.
1 yard outside fabric
1 yard inside lining fabric.
1 yard batting
I sandwich the 3 layers placed my ruler and mat on top of folded sandwich to decided what size I wanted.
trimmed to desired fit.
Quilted the Sandwich / than added binding to the top folded raw edges
measured handles to fit around my sewing machine bag handle added them
Sewed sides together and my bag was born.
I used the fold for the bottom seam I feel it makes it stronger with no sewn seem to rip open.
This will make the patterned fabric upside down on one side when you are finished.
My thought is only one side shows when I walk with it. I keep the correct side out the upside down side to my body or machine bag handles.
Your choice on what you like. Thanks
