Under the Sea Projects To Go Tote

I told you I’d been sewing up a storm—and I have. Here’s another result of my efforts—a Projects To Go Tote with tons of pockets to hold all my stuff when I go to creative workshops.

This tote holds a lot and is very useful as it has pockets all around the outside and inside. The drawstring component is optional, but I quite like it.

I can see using this not only for sewing or quilting workshops but also for knitting projects.

My friend Carol is president of the Silver Threads Quilt Guild. We had an all-day Saturday guild workshop and the two of us helped the 25 attendees make this tote—no one used the same fabrics which made me want to make more bags as there were so many great ideas.


  • The pattern is from Whistlepig Creek Productions.
  • I used solid fabric for the bottom and outside pocket lining/trim. It was leftover fabric by Fig Tree & Co for Moda Patisserie I used to make my Paris Traveler’s Bag.
  • The main part of the bag was created using Hoffman California’s Avalon Stained Glass fabrics in Kelp Garden Pacific, Mermaids Pacific, and Ocean Waves Ocean. These were purchased at Lynn's Sewing Center.
