This bag can be made in two sizes. It has a zipper top and carrying straps. It is a companion piece to Running with Scissors but is great by itself. The large size can fit a small sewing machine or be filled with larger items. The smaller bag is a great size to be used as a purse or fill with sewing stuff to take to class. You will come to the first (half day) class with the required fabric quilted as per the instructions so that we can get all the required pieces cut.
