Update:If you aren't in love with sewing in zippers, there is a new version of this bag in my store. It's called Quilters snap Bee bag and there are NO zippers. Now for those of you not daunted by zippers: I've seen similar bags; I needed something much larger and with more pockets and a place for my threads so I added these features. It is the biggest bag of it's kind with the most pockets and pocket options available. You are going to LOVE this bag. The pattern includes an image for each step; making this pattern super easy to follow. There are detail instructions on how to insert the zipper so don't fret if you've never sewn a zipper into a project. This bag is large enough to carry all your quilting supplies with you to bee so all you'll have to do is grab this bag and your sewing machine and your ready to sew with your friends! This is best viewed on your laptop or your pad. I've removed the printable version because there seems to be some issue with craftsy and zipped files. You will have two files to download so be sure to get them both. One file is for 120 page pattern with large images and one file is for a more printer friendly version of 30 pages. You get the free instructions on how to make the clear thread pockets, those detailed instructions start on page 106. Contact me if you do not see both files. I hope you enjoy your bag as much as I enjoy mine. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY General sewing skills. SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS Bag measures 17x7 closed and 17 x 16 open and is 8 inches tall not including handles.
