Island Batik Ambassador's It's In The Bag! Blog Hop

This month the Island Batik Ambassadors were asked to create a bag from  I chose the Clam Up zippered pouches because I have been needing small bags to take my tools around with me.

Having made a few by Annie patterns this was by far the easiest I've made.  It has an added bonus of having and Add-On Video Tutorial which I watched and really helped me make my bag.  

I decided to make three of these bags and am happy to report that I had them done in just a few hours using by favorite Aurifil Thread and Schmetz Microtex Needles! 

For this project I received the cute Vintage Charm collection by Kathy Engle for Terri Vanden Bosch of Lizard Creek Quilting.  It was a fun color palate to play with. 

I recently went to International Quilt Festival in Houston, Texas and needed to take some supplies with me for my classes.  These cute pouches worked PERFECTLY!

I was able to fit my oval pin cushion in to the small bag.

I was able to fit all my pens and marking tools and scissors into the large bag.

It was perfect!
