Small sewing bag with flying pockets. Tutorial now on Craftsy



 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!









And now here are all three of them!

Happy sewing!

Gutterman spools are handy!

Did you know that all Gutterman spools have a hidden compartment! 
It can be used not only to fix the thread tail, but also as a needle keeper! I tried to insert the rubber end from the regular pencil and it fits perfectly! 
You can also make a small travel type spool with several thread colors on it using your bobbin winder on sewing machine as I described in my recent blog post .

Happy sewing!
