LET'S GET ORGANIZED - CATCH ALL CADDY
- Jul 03, 2019 10:00 am

This over-sized, sturdy caddy has lots of easy-to-access slip pockets and dividers to hold and organize all your supplies. You will be thrilled to learn how to make bellowed inner dividers. Their ingenious design allows the interior fabric dividers to be fully expandable yet to also be able to fall flat against the caddy when not in use. This project also introduces a new style of handles which are padded with Soft and Stable and attached to the caddy using rectangle rings. You will test your binding skills as you sew the binding on the bulky bottoms and curved edges and make the "grab" handles on the end. But you're an expert, so it's no problem! PLEASE NOTE THERE IS A TIME AND/OR DATE CHANGE.

Come learn how to make this beautiful patchwork bag using QuiltSmart Panels. These bags have been very popular and we bet you can't make just one!

The QuiltSmart panels yield beautiful patchwork piecing. We will discuss variations and options (like additional pockets), and if you don't complete your bag in class you'll have the information and skills to finish up at home.
