I decided I really needed a sewing tote bag to hold my sewing stuff when I travel.
We will be heading North soon to visit my friend and deliver her valances that I made for her new home along with some placemats, napkins, napkin rings and coordinating table runner that I made for her breakfast area as a housewarming gift.
Then, we will be visiting family in KY and meeting up with more family in NC for a little vacation time together. I really need that!
Along the way, I know that I will be sewing a bed skirt plus a few other things. And I know that my granddaughter will have some requests as well. I think I will be busy and the sewing tote bag will come in handy.
When I thought about what kind of bag would work for me, this is what I concluded.
I wanted the bag to be a pressing mat that would fold up to be a shoulder tote to hold my cutting mat, rotary cutter, dressmaker shears, large ruler and all the small sewing notions, thread, pins, needles, beeswax, marking pens, etc., that I need to sew a project. Plus, I wanted room to put in some fabric and sewing patterns, as well. And then, I decided I needed an outside pocket to put my cell phone and car keys along with my wallet. That would about do it. Irons are usually available in hotels so that isn't a problem
I've been working on the Sewing Tote Bag today. It is really is a simple sewing project.
I think I have what I want. I am going to test it soon. I will run it by my sewing friends to get their input.
Let me know what you are sewing.
