Downloadable Bag Pattern by Jo-Lydia's Attic:
Quilted Sewing & Travel Organizers Pattern in PDF by Jo-Lydia's Attic
The Quilted Sewing & Travel Organizers Pattern -

This trio of quilted bags is perfect to stash your hand-sewing tools and craft iron so you can grab them and go when you're headed to sewing class orĀ  appointments where you may have a little time for handwork. Below is a description of each individual (and helpful!) pattern bag:

Ditty Bag:
Finished Size:2"deep x 5" high x 7" long
This little bag is super-quick to sew; the separating zipper is the key to making it easy to construct. It's the perfect size for your scissors, needles, thimble, measuring gauge, and any other small tools you want to keep together and close at hand. Use it when you travel to organize charger cords or other small items in your suitcase or carry-on.

Carry Me Tote with Handles:
Finished Size is13-1/2" x 7" x 2-1/2".
This little bag is the perfect place to tuck your handwork, plus the Ditty Bag with your hand-sewing tools. It opens wide, making it easy to pack and then find what you've tucked inside. You can tuck your mini-iron in too, for sewing class or to use when staying in a hotel room. The tote is also a great travel companion for organizing small items in your carry-on or checked luggage.

Insulated Iron Caddy/Pressing Mat:
The Finished Size is 5" x 14" closed and
10" x 14" open. Use this multi-purpose caddy to pack a small craft iron for sewing class or tuck your flat iron and other small hair itemsĀ  inside when traveling. There's room for other hair items too. Unzip it to reveal a padded pressing mat to keep by your sewing machine and to use at your table during during sewing or quilting classes. It's also good for small touch-up pressing jobs in your hotel room. Lined with silver-coated fabric for ironing boards, the caddy includes a layer of insulated batting too.
