Pattern Description:

Like some people who shout out
" Where are my KEYS?"
I whisper using my inside voice.....
"WHERE's my Scissors?"
I would lose them under bundles of fabric
or tucked into patterns, or along the sides of my chair
... I was constantly searching for them

Now I clearly have them where I can see them
right beside m sewing table and it holds everything I need!
Especially my Scissors!

I designed The Tammy small project bag complete:

2 small pockets on the outside to hold 2 pair of scissors.
2 small pockets on the other side (outside) to hold 2 spools of thread
2 small pockets on the inside to hold , hoops, hexes, needle case....

By the way, you can make it in any fabric you like...
I just mentioned GINGHAM because that is what I used...

You will need at least 1 yard for outside,
1 yard for inside ( lining and pockets)
1 handle
and some fusible fleece interfacing PELLON
The completed Tammy bag is
approx size 9 inches x 8 inches high

You can find the handle I used at baglady.com
Riley Blake Designs has the gingham, rileyblakedesigns.com
Fusible Fleece by Pellon is what I used for stability! pellonprojects.com

Oh by the way, there are 65 photos in this pattern. There is no doubt
in my mind, you will successfully make a Tammy bag too.

from my gingham heart Mdm Samm
