This is a tote bag on steroids!  Including a large outer pocket, a zippered inner pocket, and even a place for keys, this cute yet versatile tote is well padded to protect all of your precious quilting tools.  Customize it with your own color choices for car, sewing machine, luggage,  … ALL or any of the accessories. Or follow the supply guide to create the image on the pattern.  If you don’t want a tote but love the picture, the pattern includes instructions for a wall hanging.

NOTE: All fabric can be cut and labeled in advance.  Confident sewers will even be able to complete some of the bag construction before Retreat if they wish.
