Shell pouch with embroidered anchor + steering wheel and clear pockets

 Ready for the cruise? Take this pouch with you!

Medium (9" x 5 1/2" x 3") or smaller (7" x 5 /2" x 3") sizes.

It has two invisible magnetic clasps and two clear zippered pockets.
You can use it as a regular cosmetic bag

 or as a busy bag or organizer for your small crafting project you want to take with you!
Medium size pouch holds up to 6 spools on one side and the small one up to 4.

This is my original design and I will show you the nice advantage of this bag as for the traveller or taking it with you for the class, retreat or just using it when you are a passenger in the car, cruise ship, airplane etc.
Here's how it works.
Place your spool in the pocket. 
Pick the color of the thread you want to use, pool the thread through opened zipper and thread the needle using threader (I recommend Clover threader).

Now pull the needle with thread through the fabric top part of the pouch where those magnetic clasps are attached.
And leave your needle on the magnet! Now you can zip your pouch. 
You can also pull through all of those threads and leave just a little tail of each color. No worry about dropping or loosing your spools, they are nicely organized in the pocket. And no need to unzip it every time you ned to start with another color of thread.
And one more little convenience: when you open it, the bottom makes nice triangular shape on the bottom which perfectly fits the place on your lap between your legs, and the top is totally flat and clear,  just like a little table. 

You can purchase these pouches, small or medium size, in my Etsy store.

If you buy it in my store you get FREE matching bracelet with anchor and steering wheel!

If you want to make your own shell pouch with clear pockets and magnetic clasps find my tutorial on Craftsy, in my Etsy store or in my store.

Happy sewing!
