I am a published sewing and quilting author with several books and many magazine articles to my credit. My most recent book, How to Make a Quilt was published in August 2014 by Storey Publishing. I've written two other successful books for them-- The Quilting Answer Book and The Sewing Answer Book. I learned to sew from my great grandmother, two grandmothers, and my Mom when I was barely in grade school and I've been sewing ever since. I added quilting to my repertoire in the 1980s and worked for a major quilt book publisher as Managing Editor and then Editor-in-Chief for 5 years. Now I have my own business, designing quilts and tote bags and anything else that strikes my fancy. Go to www.joyofsewingandquilting.blogspot.com to see my projects and whatever else I'm up to. Thanks for stopping by and I hope you find something you'd like to make in my Craftsy store!
Here's a great way to showcase your handiwork! Machine embroidery, applique and patchwork designs are perfect embellishments for the gusseted pockets on the outside of this roomy tote.
Two inner zipped pockets, one large enough to hold a book or papers, make it easy to keep things organized and safe inside.
Load up your finished carryall to take to quilting or sewing class or to tote treasures home from a garden tour or a whirlwind trip to the fabric stores in your area.
Customize the design on the gusseted pockets to suit the user-music notes and symbols for a music lover or embroidered flowers for a gardener! You get the idea-be creative!
