Join the Bob-a-Long and make your own version of Quilt Jane's Bob Box on

Are you addicted to taking your projects on the road with you? Or are you like me and have a bazillion bobbins doing their own thing? Well you’re in luck, the fabulous Jane (of Quilt Jane) has just released a new pattern; The Bob Bag.

It’s a great pattern for making this handy little (it’s only 4″ x 2 1/4″ x 4″) bits and bobs box that you can use in your sewing space or take with you when you travel. It’s a great idea for anyone looking for a special inclusion in a swap package (who isn’t in a swap these days!). The project takes under 2 hours to make, which is great for those (like me!) who are limited for time.

To celebrate the release of The Bob Bag I’m hosting a fun little Bob-a-Long over the next 3 weeks. I have some fabulous bloggers lined up to share with you their Bob‘s, hints, tips and tricks as well as the chance to win some great prizes. Want to know more?

The following bloggers will be acting as your tours guide on the Bob-a-Long:

Monday 23 March – Angie @ GnomeAngel

Wednesday 25 March – Jane @ Quilt Jane

Friday 27 March – Peta @ She Quilts Alot

Monday 30 March – Anita @ Daydreams of Quilts

Tuesday 31 March – Peta @ Peta Quilts

Friday 3 April – Melissa @ Ms Midge

Wednesday 8 April – Gemma @ Pretty Bobbins

Friday 10 April – Angie @ GnomeAngel (Link Up & Prizes)

That’s some serious talent in that list and I cannot wait to see the different versions of Bob that they all make. I’m pretty sure I’m going to covert them all.

The Bob can be made with or without the bolts (for holding the bobbins). You can always make more than one Bob if you can’t make up your mind.

On Friday 10 April I’m going to pop up a link party for those of you that have made a Bob and would like to go in the draw to win some prizes. If you’re sharing your progress on Instagram then be sure to include the hashtag #bobalong and #thebobbag so we can all check out your Bob.

  1. I bought my pattern! I always drag around thread for working on paper piecing. This might be a fun project to liven up my current thread holder…a ziploc bag in my purse 🙂
