I just signed up for a beginners' quilting class. I'd like a bag to carry my cutting mat, ruler and other supplies to class. Can someone point me to a pattern or ready-made bag?

June Tailor makes a ready-made bag:
June Tailor Quilter's Tote with pressing station at Joann's

I like the Art-Bins Sew-lutions Mat Ruler Tote even though it doesn't have a built-in pressing station.

Good idea! I signed up for one too and a bag would be a great idea. Here is a cute tutorial. http://www.sewmamasew.com/media/blog/SMSQuiltedTote.pdf I have a pattern that I think would also be goof called the Ella Carry All http://henriettashandbags.com/ella_carry_all_bag_pattern.html It is like a mini duffel bag. Another idea is to just search google images for sewing blogs tote tutorial and you will find a ton of them.

A book I bought last year that I refer to a lot is " French General HOME SEWN" by Kaari Meng. It gives lots of patterns for basic home things like cushions,Tote bags ( 2) window treatmants , natural sheets and many more. It is a fun book and I made several totes using their measurments and instructions but my own fabric remnants of denim and drapery fabric to construct. I believe I found the book on Amazon for less after spying it at Barnes and Noble. I am actually flying tomorrow and using one of my totes as a carry on bag. Its bigger than a purse and I can put my small handback inside it. I aslo use it to carry some of my sewing samples to show off.

My suggestion is to use a basket if you have one at first till you know what size of bag and type you need. Quilting incorporates a tremendous amount of stuff that is needed. I had no idea when I started quilting the cost involved. Probably a good thing that I didn't know. So if you have a bag, suitcase, basket, or something to use at first, then in a few months you will know what you really need to purchase. There are some great suitcase systems that allow you to carry machine & stuff. Look around in the quilt shop and online. Talk to other quilters and see what they like. Then you will have more information to know what works for you. I use a bag that I received from the Lancome counter when I purchased some makeup several years ago. It works great as I can get my rulers and a medium cutting board in it to take to class. Happy shopping!!!

On America Sews, the Sue Hausman, show on PBS they had a tote. It looked pretty nice - seemed to have lots of pockets and dividers.

From the website:
2807 PORTABLE ORGANIZER
Sew a quilted Portable Organizer to carry all your sewing supplies to classes, retreats or even to store them. Guest Annie Lindsay demonstrates making plenty of pockets and dividers and then shows how to put it all together.

There is a downloadable PDF file here.

Apparently the DVD for this series is not yet avaialable.

I wanted something that was narrow that could hang in my closet. I cut one leg off my son's old jeans to a length of 23 inches. The width of this leg is 10 inches. The hem of the pants is the top of my bag, left open to slide my rulers into. I then sewed close the cut area of the pant leg (this is the bottom of my bag). I cut the back pocket on the pants and sewed it approx. 3 inches from the pant hem. Since this pocket is big, I keep my rotary cutter in it as well as extra blades. The side seam on the cut pants has a seam that was top stitched 3 times by the manufacture. I cut approx 1 inch on either side of this thick seam. Folding the cut edges of the seam to the inside, I topstitched both sides to make a strap and this I attaches to the top pant hem and it is used as a loop to hang on a hook in my closet. This works well and everyone that has seen it likes the recycled project. When my son seen my bag, he said, "hey, those were my favorite pants".
