The frame of the old one was made from pieces of cardboard cereal boxes stapled together? Haha. I don't think I planned for it to be used for 19 years! It was made in a quilt class I was taking - to hold the appliqué blocks we were working one. It was a Piecmakers Calendar, Times and Seasons 1997.
With the new one I used 13x12 pieces of corrugated white plastic. I elimated the handle. I found I didn't really use the handle as I usually put the folder in a bag with all the other supplies I needed.
I have a small pocket on the inside flap.
A quilting friend gave me a stack of six mini design boards. They are WONDERFUL!! I love them! The block pieces stick so well to them and then another board can be stacked on top. Holding all pieces securely in place.
My collection of tools ---
The thread and scissor holder I won from Carol at "Quilting Advenures"
The seam roller in another great tool!!!
I keep all the tools in a small plastic container.
In my bag.
