Auction: bionic/gear bag modified

Getting ready for the quilt show, making stuff for our General store, trying to raise some money for our guild! Just completed these bags. Looks same as bionic/gear bags, same size, but I made some changes to it: pockets are made separately! If you look closer you can see 7" x 4" ruler under the pockets which makes it more convenient!. It's made the same way as my Quilters sewing bag, just twice smaller.

Since I made all these bags for sale in our General store for "Quilts in the Boro 2015" show, it doesn't matter to me who is going to buy it. We are trying to raise some money for the guild to cover our expenses for two days quilt show. So I decided to auction one of these bags! 




The size of the bag is 8" x 4 1/2" x 4". 
Anybody who is interested can participate! You can share this link with anybody who would be interested! You can place your bid on my Facebook page Natalie Patton in the comments to this post this SUNDAY, AUGUST 2d since 9 am Eastern time to 9 pm Pacific time (lol) - all day long! (I will repost it on Sunday morning, so it will be on the top of my page).The winner will also have a little prize from me - 7" x 4" ruler as shown on the picture, it will go together with this bag! And of course bunch of THANKS from our guild members! I will also cover shipping expenses within USA! Please, help us make it happen! Thank you all for your support!

"No math method" of making geometry pattern

All right!
Yesterday I was getting ready to teach the class on my "No math method of making geometry patterns". Forget about inches and calculation, all you can do is just fold your freezer paper and use the bend of it as a stitching line!
This was my sample.
And this is what we've done all together today!
The most exciting moment was when we joined all 12 segments in one piece!

Good job, girls! Thank you for learning with me this method! I hope you enjoyed!
I guess this is a good idea for my next tutorial!

Happy sewing!

Shell pouch with clear zippered pockets

I have something else new to share with you today! 
 This is my next "Shell pouch with clear zippered pockets",
 a little bigger, than the previous one (find it in my earlier post). That was 7"x5" size, 
And this is a perfect travel size pouch - 12"x5"! 
 Pockets are clear, you don't need to unzip them to see what's in it! You can keep 6 Aurifil size spools on one side and needles set, seam ripper, threader and scissors on another. Two invisible magnets just clasps like a shell. AND you don't even need a pincushion! Pull your thread through the top part of the pouch, thread your needle with threader and just leave it on the magnet! Your needles will be resting between those magnets even when it's closed! Never loose them and always ready for use!
Threader is a great thing for traveling too! If you never used it before - watch this video, - one of my favorite time-saving things!!! You can't carry scissors in your carry-on, but the threader has a nice and sharp built-in thread cutter! So you can take your small hand-sewing projects aboard with this ergonomic and convenient pouch and be busy with your favorite things!


If this pouch is too small for you and you need a bigger something for your rulers, cutters and the whole bunch of other supplies, you might also like my Quilters sewing bag
