This is a great utility bag. At home, it serves as a scrapbag/garbage bag on your cutting service. The Notions Holder is attached with Velcro. There is also a large zipper pocket in the Notions Holder. You can customize the top pockets to your needs. When you travel, just un-Velcro and tuck in side the bag. You can then fill the bag with all your other essentials.
