Statement

I really enjoy workshops! The expertise of the instructor, the camaraderie of the group, learning new skills, all of it makes me happy. But one of the problems associated with taking workshops is how to carry all the supplies and equipment. Since I often attend workshops involved with quilting or other fabric cutting, I frequently need to take a cutting board (purple, of course, as it is my favorite color) and cutting guides for use with a rotary cutter (a wonderful cutting tool fashioned like a rolling razor blade).

My favorite cutting guide is 24 long and that means I need a big bag. But purse-en-alities project guidelines did not allow me to make a bag that big. To solve this, I simply found a way to make the bag smaller; a zipper takes a giant tuck in it to make it shorter.

Okay, so now I have a big bag and can load lots of things into it. Oops! That makes it very heavy. Enter a purple skateboard and a strap of material that is fastened with a wide strip of Velcro. This secures the skateboard to the bottom of the bag. Finally, I am ready to Sew and Go!
