A Bit of Sewing

This afternoon I stumbled on a sewing pattern for the Bionic Gear Bag designed by Sally Thompson.

It's available from her website or as a download from Craftsy. Included in the pattern are the Notions Fabric Dish (here's the tutorial)

 and the Bionic Dumpling Fabric Dish. The Dumpling Dish is a zipped bag that when open, is round and shallow like a dish. It can be created with magnetic attachments to fit in the Gear Bag. The Fabric Pin Dish is also a free download on Craftsy. I decided to try out the Dumpling Dish pattern.

The pattern requires less than a fat quarter of the exterior and lining fabrics, light fusible stabilizer, and a 9" zipper. I had everything in my stash.

The instructions were very verbose but basically there are two darts on each side which create the flat bottom. The finished bag measures about 2 1/2" high x 6 1/2" wide.

It opens up wide.

I'm using it for plastic clips. It holds about 30 of them.

I enlarged the pattern on my printer and will now make a bigger bag for Skip's cables and chargers for our upcoming trip to Iceland.
