I have one of those cutting mats for sewing, laid out on a large table. This morning I went down one side to mark the size of the tote bags I am making. I have the length of straps for an adult bag, the width including seam allowance and depth with allowance for the top seam with a note to fold this piece. I wrote it with a ball point pen in my small scribbles. On the other side I have measurements for placemats, and valances with headers. This makes my life much easier.
