This project is for all of you crafters who need more time to work on your small projects. I designed an embroidery bag several months ago for myself and loved it so much, I made some more and changed it up a bit. I have embroidered almost all my life. I have found that if I keep my small hand sewing projects in a purse or bag, I finish them up fairly quickly.
Follow along to see how to make a Take along bag with a, scissor holder, thimble bag, pockets, and unique ways to store your thread! Follow through and let's get started~
Please note that I did not use the metal tape or magnetic strips because I used a button and flap instead.
