Pattern bag

I started buying pdf patterns when they were print and tape, then stopped. The whole print-cut-tape-trace dance just did my head in. Too much hassle. Then the pattern companies started offering them as A0 files. A much better option.

Now whenever I buy a pdf pattern I immediately have it printed. I have several many LOTS of these A0 sheets. All rolled up and stored on top of my piano. Not really a good storage solution.

THIS is a storage solution:

I photographed it on my sewing chair. The fabric came from a swap meet. It is a medium weight printed canvas covered with bicycles. I love bicycles. I was saving this for a bicycle pannier, but a bag for my other hobby seemed to make sense.

This was a really simple make, a large tube with a square base and a foldover flap at the top.






My piano is now covered with music related stuff – mostly small percussion and sheet music. The pattern bag sits on the floor at the bell end of the piano.

The details

Fabric – Printed canvas, from a fabric swap.

Pattern – self drafted

Annoyance factor – No annoyance at all. This was a breeze.

    I keep meaning to come up with a better solution to storing my blueprints (as my husband calls them! LOL!). I love the little bag!

    And I agree, large format + layering has made me much more open to PDF patterns.
