The Amethyst Project bag is the cutest mini suitcase, and features ample storage space for any project or hobby – quilting, drawing, hand-sewing, and so much more!

The lining features a zippered pouch, mesh zippered pocket, and elastics for holding pens or other items.

The bottom of the case has an elastic buckle strap to hold quilt blocks, books, and rulers.
