Making New Things



Our Quilters' Guild member, Linda G., led us in a work group to make the coolest bag for our tools. This is her very practical Peekaboo Bag. I am completely and totally captivated! This bag is large enough to hold all of the items that we need to carry to workshops and classes. Mine holds scissors, a rotary cutter, thread, feet for my machine, my Mr. McGoo sewing glasses, needles and anything else that I need to take to class. The clear vinyl window lets me see all that is in the bag. Thanks, Linda! You are the best! These are going to be great sellers at our Quilt Show!

  3. Hello, Shana,

    There is not a pattern for this particular bag, but I am presently working on a pattern for a bag using clear vinyl that is similar, but even MORE practical. I will be posting about it here on my blog when I have the pattern available.

  5. Hello, Neuras,

    My pattern is still in the development stage. Life continues to get in the way of my designing efforts. I have high hopes of being able to finally get this finished after completing a big obligation that will be finished in April.

  6. Do you have the measurements for the pieces for this bag? I would like to try and make it on my own.

    1. I made this item so long ago that I no longer have it so I can't provide measurements. But really, you could still give it a try and make it in whatever size you like.

  7. I made this some time ago, Lorelei, but I believe that I used 16 gauge.

  8. Here's a pattern very similar - I just bought it! $5 + $2shipping. The bag on this page has the zipper in the front (flower) and the bag pattern I bought has the zipper on the top - it can be modified, I'm sure :)
