Green Tote Bag

Some weeks ago, I ran across the blog Hooked on Needles with a wonderful tote bag tutorial. It looked like it would be really great for stitching workshops or traveling. I hadn't sewn anything up in quite some time but decided to give it a try. The tutorial made it really easy.

Look! I made it have a little pocket on the outside just right for a boarding pass, cause I always seem to lose it in my purse and panic at the gate. It has a zippered extension that will protect larger projects on up to 16x18 inch stretcher bars with room for threads and accessories.

Inside, I have two pockets on one side and three on the other. Yes, that is a big floss bobbin box in one big pocket and Mag Eyes in the other. This bag will hold my stitching supplies, my battery-powered Ott light, and a good-sized project.
