I needed a small project bag.... A place where I could put my scissors.
Like some people who shout out
" Where are my KEYS?"
I whisper using my inside voice.....
"WHERE's my Scissors?"
I would lose them under bundles of fabric
or tucked into patterns, or along the sides of my chair
... I was constantly searching for them
Now I clearly have them where I can see them
right beside m sewing table and it holds everything I need!
Especially my Scissors!
I designed The Tammy small project bag complete:
2 small pockets on the outside to hold 2 pair of scissors.
2 small pockets on the other side (outside) to hold 2 spools of thread
2 small pockets on the inside to hold , hoops, hexes, needle case....
I called it the Tammy after watching some old movies
with Sandra Dee and Debbie Reynolds playing the role of Tammy.
In the 50's gingham was in its popularity as a fabric
that screamed SUMMER.
And you know how much I have a love affair
by the way, you can make it in any fabric you like...
I just mentioned GINGHAM because that is what I used...
You will need at least 1 yard for outside,
1 yard for inside ( lining and pockets)
The completed Tammy bag is
approx size 9 inches x 8 inches high
As I like to sew small projects in the summer and I like
to take those small projects with me, I wanted to do it in STYLE.
I wanted one bag that would hold everything, especially, yes you guessed...
MY SCISSORS ! I will be giving you solutions what to place on ends
of scissors so you do not cut your Tammy Bag.
Bonus needle case too! ( working on that maybe in time for hop)
The Tammy will be a blog hop scheduled for mid JUNE.
YOU will have plenty of time to get it done...because
if you are anything like me...you will want it NOW.
We have only 50 spots for this HOP!
YOU (50) will get the Pattern FREE.
It is filled with many many photos..
over 60 so far....
YOU will be sent a FREE PDF file
of the pattern! ( once the schedule is up)
I am still working on the pattern,
it will be completed by end of week...
IF you would like to make your very own small project...
with this subject line
"I love Tammy too"
I will need your name

If you are a non blogger, we have people who can host your project
( tell me if you do not have a blog ok)
I will be your cheerleader on this one...
You will need this handle....it was the largest
one I could find. BAG LADY has it, it is perfect
comes in either silver or gold...
You can order directly from them!
Tell them or write them saying you need the ML56
that is the handle that is needed for this project.
( for those overseas that cannot get this handle..
just be sure to find a 5.5 inch or 14 cm rectangle handle
that you sew in, not a glue in)
