Pattern Review: Noodlehead Handy Sewing Bag
Good morning! So if you are like me, you are constantly looking for ways to organize your sewing and crafting supplies. I am always switching things up and finding better ways to store things and new ways to free up space in my crafting area. I came across this Divided Basket Pattern from Anna Graham of Noodlehead and decided to give it a try. I love the way the basket turned out and it was really quick to put together. I made this as a Christmas gift for a fellow sewing friend. She, like me, doesn’t have a lot of space for crafting and sewing, so organization is key!
This basket is really great in keeping supplies together. I’m planning on making a couple of these for myself. I think it would be great for keeping the sewing project I’m currently working on and the supplies needed for it all in one place. I also think this basket, made in bright colorful fabrics, could be great for organizing some of my kids’ toys! I could skip the outer pocket and it would go together even quicker!
The pattern features a divided liner and an outside pocket. I chose to use three fabrics and purchased them all from my favorite local quilting store. The two main fabrics are from the Timeless Treasures Forest Frolic collection. I love all of the fabrics in this collection – they are so pretty! I chose to use the Forest Frolic Birds in Cream and the Forest Frolic Triangles Multi along with a blue Koda solid. I finished this bag the night before I gifted it, so my pictures were taken at night and don’t quite do the beautiful fabrics justice! You can see how bright and vibrant they are in the picture below!
I love how easy the pattern was to follow and how quickly this basket came together. If you are interested in making one yourself, you can find the Divided Basket Pattern and tutorial at Noodlehead. :)
