Pattern Details

Bound to be Yours Bag I get lots of requests for this one--people seem to want a sturdy all-purpose bag with a little depth to it AND with a few pockets to corral the necessities so they don't pile up like a traffic jam at the bottom. OUTER POCKETS: Two outer pockets, easily accessed, one zippered, one not zippered. Can easily change both to be the same. INNER POCKETS; 14 inner pockets are part of the lining. Inner pockets are about 6" high. Easily customize the width and number of the inner pockets as you like. HANDLE: Short handle for quick grab & go. Make longer if you like. Sturdy padded handle without turning a tube right side out. CLOSURE: Magnet clasp closure is tidy and inconspicuous. PADDED: Quilting it is optional.

Since coloring in squares on graph paper with crayons as a preschooler (my early venture into quilt design?), my journey into the sewing and quilting world has been nonstop! I am mostly self-taught, which means I owe a lot to my 4-H teachers, my mother (for allowing me time to sew) contributors to the sewing magazines (and now blogs), and the traveling instructors at sewing expos, and of course my sewing friends--thank you, thank you, thank you! I worked and taught quilt classes and serger classes for over ten years at a local quilt shop. During that time I developed and patented the Sew Easy Guide, a tool for quilting and sewing diagonally across squares without marking or using paper. I hope to continue inventing sewing tools and designing patterns that are practical AND pretty. Thanks to Craftsy, sharing these designs will be easier than ever--thank you Craftsy!
