    Does anyone have a sewing pattern for ditty bags? We used them in my theatre departments in college & summer stock but I haven't been able to find a pattern anywhere. They hang over a hanger & are used to put the actor's tights, costume props, accessories, etc (character shoes can even fit in 2 of the pockets.)

    This is the one I use. We had a donation of some old bedsheets, they work really well for this! And I had the kids sew some up for a sewing project assignment.

    I've made them w/out a pattern out of scrap muslin and I have used mens button-up shirts as well to make them.
