Every sewist should have a sewing caddy (sewing bag) for tools and notions. I made one today.
The caddy has inside and outside pocket. I made it from blackout curtain fabric I got for $2 per meter. It turns to be quite sturdy.
This is the first hand carrying bag I made. It’s simple but not quite straight forward. It has lots of stitching, mainly because of the top stitching. Luckily I have a semi industrial machine that runs through the multiple layers of heavy weight fabric effortlessly.
See it on my blog for more detail.
