So I just had to make one....
1. Take 2 fat quarters and batting the same size.
2. Quilt as desired
3. Bind the lower edge and then turn up 5-6 inches to form the pockets.
4 Bind the remaining 3 edges.
I've had that fat quarter printed with a sewing tool design for years just waiting for the right project!

Once you start on something it's hard to stop... saw this pattern for another bag. Perfect for carrying that mug to WAQ meetings and workshops (and I even have space for my teabags and cuppa-soup packets!)

I thought I would need to use paper piecing but it was just too complicated and some units didn't work with that technique, so went back to the old paper templates and rotary cutter to cut it out.
I was really pleased with the result (see the photos where I've laid the finished unit over the paper pattern) It went together really quickly on my machine.

In the hope that I can get some UFOs finished, or at least to be given the light of day, I've made a list of them at the bottom of the side bar.
I hope to get this paper cut quilt finished eventually as it has been sitting in my cupboard for a number of years. I did a few more stitches on it whilst doing duty at Quilt West last week. Maybe it will be ready for next year's show....
Then there is the problem of all those W.I.M.Bs (Works In My Brain) that are begging to be started....
