How can you use this caddy? Here is what Annie says: Control the clutter with this sturdy caddy. Its small footprint makes it perfect for using next to the sewing machine or on a desk or coffee table.
Five outer slip pockets provide easy access to tools and supplies, and a zippered pocket on one end keeps personal items safe and secure.
Expanding dividers on the inside organize a multitude of supplies or collapse flat against the interior of the caddy affording a wide-open interior.
To highlight Tula Pink’s Pretty in Pink fabric from her Daydreamer collection, we fussy cut the flamingos for Pockets A, B, C, and D, cutting them slightly larger than the pattern dimensions to accommodate for any shrinkage which may occur during quilting. We then quilt these small pieces using either a light thread or an invisible thread, free-motion meandering around the outline of the flamingos which makes the images pop. There is plenty of remaining fabric to quilt the caddy front and side strip, and to complete the inner accordion-style dividers.
We did not include a stabilizer sleeve in our sample.
We opted to eliminate the zipper from Pocket D, and, instead, created two Pocket C’s, by simply binding the top long edge of each piece.
Our handles are made from Tula Pink webbing which makes fast work of a normally tedious process.
When working with nylon webbing, I like to slightly singe each cut end with a lighter to eliminate fraying; you can also use a product like Fray Check.
Webbing Cutting Instructions: For the handle tabs, cut four 6 ½” stripsFor the handles, cut two 15” stripsTo Make Handle Tabs:Insert 1 ½” of webbing into 1” rectangle ring, fold over the webbing and sew to secure. I like to make a ¾” box with an X inside. I stitch this twice for extra security. Make 4.
To Make Handles: Mark a line 4 ½” from each side. Fold the webbing in half and stitch between these marked lines. I stitched at 1/8” intervals to secure—your thread will show, so pay attention to both your top thread and your bobbin thread.To Complete Handle Units:Follow the instructions in Section IIC.
Make Handle Units in the printed ByAnnie pattern.

Sew this sling style bag to carry your daily necessities or to take for travel. It’s convenient sling design allows for easy access as well as being out of the way when you’re not using it. It is compact yet roomy enough for the essentials.
Our quilted sample is made by Kim Greenfeld❤️
Approx. Finished Dimensions:
7” wide by 3” deep, 11” tall [17.8 cm x 7.6 cm x 28 cm]
The placement of the ribbons is totally up to you; however, I made the following design decisions for the sample:
1. On the Zipper Strip: once the zipper is attached to the two top gusset panels, I stitched down a ribbon on either side of the zipper using my 1/4” foot.
2. On the Shoulder Connector: before I sewed the two shoulder connector fabrics right sides together, I opted to stitch down a ribbon on the shorter side of the pieces (where the strap connects to the shoulder connector).
3. On the Zipper Cover, I stitched a ribbon just above the lower seam line for added interest.
Kim G is our expert sample maker , here is her comment:
I used the Soft & Stable for the two main panels, the two top gusset panels, and the bottom gusset panel. These pieces are the main body of the bag. I simply cut the fabric and Soft and Stable the sizes indicated in the pattern, and then stitch around the edge 1/8” to secure the fabric to the Soft and Stable. You can also quilt it if you choose—I crosshatch quilted the sample in the photo.
I had to make a slight modification for my fabric but the pattern is beautifully written and incredibly easy to make. She calls for canvas which is a sturdier fabric than the quilting cotton I’m using so when I made the first one I made it without Soft and Stable and it felt a little too floppy. So I opened it up and sewed in some Soft and Stable, put the bag back together and it worked out beautifully. It’s super cool – it’s a one-armed bag and it even fits me and I didn’t alter it in any way. It’s a cool, throw-it-on bag with a front pocket.
Something I would like to point out is that I fussy-cut the flap to fit the pocket but if I tried to do it again I’m not sure that I could. So here finally is the green and blue webbing and I matched the interior to the webbing.
