sewing machine bag

Hello friends, hope you all got some time to sew and relax this weekend.

I sewed like a mad woman all weekend long (well, I did other stuff too, but most of my free time was taken up by sewing). On Saturday morning I got it in my head that I needed a bag for my sewing machine. Because, really, Sewtopia is just around the corner and I had no way of lugging my super heavy Juki there and back.


I was sort of winging it the whole time I was sewing this bag which meant lots of ripping, and re-sewing, and re-cutting, as well as re-thinking the whole concept. I'm quite happy with the finished bag though, so it was well worth all that extra headache :).


See, it fits the machine perfectly.


I wanted this bag to be extra sturdy so I used linen and decor weight fabric for both exterior as well as lining. I also added Soft and Stable to main panels, plus many layers of SF101 and fusible fleece to sides and lining, to make sure my machine will be protected while being transported.


And pockets, of course. I added pockets to both front and back of the bag. The back one fits a 12" x 18" cutting mat. I almost skipped adding pockets to the lining but I'm glad I took the extra time to add them as they make this giant of a bag a lot more functional - bag's finished size is 15" tall x 20" wide x 9" deep.


Now I feel a leap closer to being ready for my first ever sewing retreat, yay!

Talk to you soon friends. Svetlana
