Pattern Details

My bigger size of Quilters Sewing Bag (find the pattern on Craftsy) inspired me to improve it, add more pockets, a shoulder strap and an ironing pad,- so I designed Quilters Organizer Bag, which can be also found on Craftsy. The design of this bag also allows to insert the ruler UNDER the pockets, which made this bag very handy and convenient. Ironing pad with aluminized ironing board cover fabric inside, instead of regular lining, allows to use this bag when open flat for multiple small projects when miniature iron is involved, i.e. paper piecing, fusible applique, freezer paper etc. Due to these easy to make zippered pockets and easy to attach double puller long zipper I really had a lot of requests to create the similar tutorial for the smaller bag, which makes sense, - so I did! Enjoy! BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Not really hard to make, however you need yo have basic sewing skills and know how to attach binding. Inserting zippers is not a big deal, this tutorial will guide you how to, doesn't matter if you are an experienced quilter or a beginner. SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS : 9 1/2" x 4 1/2" x 4 1/4"
