Snuggle your creative tools! That’s what I’ve done with these small bags/purses. They’re just the right size for my small notebooks, and the larger one fits my iPad. I’ll probably modify the iPad version to have a flap and strap, instead of the drawstring closure. I didn’t realize until I’d finished that it was such a good fit! The pattern was distributed at Quilting Adventures’ New Years Day party – a Mary Terry design. I added batting and lining, and a second drawstring. Dimensions before stitching together were 9 1/2″ x 14″.
The small clutch style snugs were inspired by the Urban Winter fabric from Stephanie Brandenburg’s Urban Art Collection, Camelot Cottons. I love the typewriter image! I embellished with sari silk yarn that I unwrapped and stitched on as I free motion quilted before inserting the zipper and then stitching across the ends. They’re just the right size for my small notebooks! The smaller one fits a small moleskin notebook – fabric, batting and lining were cut 7 3/4″ x 9 1/2″. Fabric, batting, lining for the slightly larger one were cut 9″x11″. I used nylon zippers and cut them to fit, after stitching across the teeth for stops. Each snug also accomodates a small pen and a few envelopes, in case in my travels I come across papers I’d like to save.
