Then suddenly yesterday morning, I remembered my torn up plastic Ziploc bag in my purse used to carry my hand applique, scissors, thread and needles to get some handwork done on the train to work in the mornings. I decided to make myself a proper pouch to carry those supplies.
Here is the front of the pouch. Now the colors are popping! The ultra linear design is gone and the eye travels all over the place.
Here is the back. The front colors blend very well with some leftover Matisse's women fabric I had.
I added some pouches to hold the needles and scissors.
My hand applique border project fits neatly in the pouch.
All folded up, it fits perfectly in my purse, with the dimensions at 14"L x 8"H x 1"D
I am very, very happy with my new bag and look forward a little bit more to my morning commute come Monday.
