I am so excited to show you one of my new patterns, it's called
Sew on the Go Bag.
I love to have a hand stitching project when I travel whether it is in the car or on the plane,
and I am always trying to keep my thread and scissors handy.
One day my husband and I were traveling to our cabin and we had stopped to get some lunch on the way. I was binding a quilt and my thread and scissors kept falling
down in the seat.
I finally ended up putting them both on the straw in my drink.
(sorry for the lame phone photo)
I decided it was time to make something a little more sophisticated to make my travel
That was the inspiration for this bag, true story.
After a few sleepless nights dreaming up all the things this little bag should do,
I came up with this.
This little bag can sit on your lap and unzips to reveal thread, scissors, needles, pins, measuring tape, crochet hook or any other supplies you might need.
I think it works perfectly for my paper pieced hexagon project.
It has a clear vinyl pocket so you can see whatever you may have stashed in it.
When you are ready to close it up, it zips and has a nice little button closure to
hold the pocket closed and everything in place.
It has little side pockets for rulers, pencils or crochet hooks and such.
The recessed zipper keeps things inside and the zipper pull makes it easy to zip.
I like it so much better than the cup and straw I ended up using.
I hope this little bag will make your travel projects a little easier!
I am so excited to show you my new Daysail patterns.
