Sewing Tool Caddy

I really needed a sewing tool caddy to take with me to the TOGA.  I was browsing pinterest to find a bag that would work, when I got an email saying I had won a bag pattern from a giveaway I had entered at Sewcal Gal. The pattern was from Lily Patch Quilts, and it was perfect!  I had won a gift certificate to Fat Quarter Shop from Count It All Joy and bought this fabric with it which is perfect for a sewing tool caddy!
Front pockets for small rulers
I  love all of the pockets in it.
I added the top pockets, they were leftover from the front pockets and are perfect for little things.

A place for everything!

inside side pockets
Nice, deep pockets for thread and bobbins

my manicure for Easter, LOL

Outside side pocket for cell phone and the other side for my camera.

pocket for my 12 1/2 inch ruler.
I'm very happy with it!  I used batting in the inside and the heaviest fusible web I could find on the outside.  I keep it on my sewing table with the handles pushed inside, for storage.
You can buy the pattern here:  http://www.etsy.com/shop/lilypatchquiltsshop , her's is really cute with a bow on top.  I did not add that because I wanted to showcase my material!  You can buy the bag on Craftsy here:  https://www.craftsy.com/profile/lily-patch-quilts
Do you like making bags?

Hi Missy,
I am stopping by from the Adorned From Above Hop and glad I did. Wonderful job on the bag. I'll have to make one of those for myself. I am a new follower.

If you ever decide to straighten your buttons on the right, I have some simple instructions to do that.

That's a fabulous bag! I would totally cut myself on those rotary cutters, though, when I reached in for fabric. I'm accident prone - LOL.

This is a really great bag! My husband is thinking how it could be modified in blues and denims for an organiser for some of his mountain of stuff that hangs around!

You did a great job with this, Missy! Love all those useful pockets. And yes, I like to make bags, but usually more loosely constructed ones.

Whoop whoop!!
