Cricut Bag




So I have a Cricut new-users class coming up next saturday and realized I needed a way take this thing with me. It's pretty heavy and awkward! I don't know if they make a bag for them but I'm sure it was more expensive than my $5 vintage sheets LOL

I threw this together last night. It only took me a few hours and some problem solving! I've never made a bag or anything that required a liner so that was a bit of a mental challenge to figure the inside-out workings of it.

The worst part was putting the handles on. There HAS to be an easier way then I went about it. Pinning them on and sorta eyeballing it unfortunatley AFTER I had put the side pleats all in. That made it hrad to tell what was on there straight or measure anything.

Making it myself I was able to get some nice pockets in there for the power cord and the tool kit. I probably should have tried making a bag with a proven pattern the first time.

Oh and this was the first large-ish sewing project I have had a chance to do with the Kenmore Mini Ultra I got for Christmas. :) Man I love that thing!
