Bag for a Budding Interior Designer

Drafting Tools Bag_1

Now that my daughter’s three young children are all in grade school, she decided it was time that she went back to school and study her favorite subject: Interior Design.

Drafting Tools

She sent me these three pictures with the request: “Can you make me a bag to hold my drafting tools?”  I’m on it, Barbara.

I fused fusible fleece to the outside bag fabric, then cut the interior lining and set them both aside.

She needed a protected place for her drawing leads, so I sewed a block of fabric onto bag front piece, and sewed the pocket into segments.  Then I created an outside flap (the clock fabric). I cut it on a slant and fused it to (again) fusible fleece.  I inserted a zipper in between the clock fabric and the lining, then bound all the edges, including the exposed edge of the other side of the zipper.  Then I sewed  it on, covering that flowered pocket piece.  This also is place she could put papers, or her magnifying glass, or whatever else.

After sewing in a zipper at the top edges, then sewing up the sides and bottom, I boxed the corners to give a little bit of space inside.

  1. A fun fun bag. I always kept my drafting stuff in a cheap plastic tackle box if it wasn’t on my table. In fact had several tool boxes equipped for various endeavors — doll making, punch needle work, crochet, knitting, as well as sewing stuff in a zillion more bags and boxes. I stock up on those plastic pencil cases and composition books (love the graph paper ones) when school supplies go on sale each year. But I’d rather have your bag!
