Quilted Crafting Bag

The Real Martha made me this cool bag (using the Sebago tote pattern from Aunties Two) to transport my ever-expanding collection of crafting paraphernalia. I think I'll use it for my crochet/knitting gear... lots of pockets for needles, tape measures and stitch markers, big enough to hold a couple large skeins of yarn as well as the project itself.Apparently Martha and Deb (who, judging by her praise this past weekend, may be this blog's biggest fan. Hi, Deb!) have been making these bags in all different sizes for friends and family. Martha says it's super easy, as you start with pre-quilted fabric that is double-faced, which eliminates the need to sew a lining.
