This is the Carry Along Maker’s Case pdf sewing pattern with extras from the designer RLR Creations Sewing.

The Carry Along Maker’s Case pattern includes instructions for a Travel Case, two detachable Notion Pouches, and a removable Project Pouch.

This Case was designed for the traveling maker. Whether to tote your sewing materials, scrapbooking stuff, crafting supplies, or any other project you are currently working on, there is no limit on the possibilities. Now you can make the perfect project bag to take your hobby on the go. Pack everything you need for the next quilt retreat, guild meeting, vacation, or kid’s sport practice.

The Maker’s Case offers plenty of room for your projects and supplies in a neatly organized system to make packing up and toting your projects a breeze.

The front offers a zippered pocket for quick access to items and an identification sleeve. The exterior back has a trolley sleeve that will allow you to easily slip the case over a rolling tote handle or a traveling suitcase. Additionally, the two carry options include a top handle or an adjustable shoulder strap.

A large zippered pocket on the interior lid will hold all of your patterns or project books, while the zipped pocket in the bottom of the case is the perfect spot to store rulers or other flat items.

The two detachable notions sleeves offer plenty of clear zippered pockets to hold all of your supplies. The two sleeves nestle together neatly to allow you to easily organize and access your notions. You can simply use the sleeves inside the case or outside the case, by removing the sleeves and laying them flat.

A clear front project pouch is included to hold your work in progress. It is large enough to comfortably store 12 ½” unfinished quilt blocks, scrapbooking paper, hooped embroidery, or any other project you are currently working on. This project pouch neatly fits inside the bottom of the case for easy travel.
