My first knitting bag sewing project

I spent today sewing a knitting bag in my studio! Thanks to lattesaremylife I had a great tutorial to work from. Also thanks to my fabric addiction I had some fun fabrics to choose from... and away I went.

It's pretty basic stuff, but I thought it would be fun to document for the future. I'm really happy!

The tutorial is from In Color Order

Okay first up, I needed 3 fabrics for the project, and to cut out all the pieces. 

My husband raised his eyebrows at my choices, but they all go together!



Cut out all my pieces (which was the longest part of everything to be honest. I wasted some of the zig zag because I can't cut a straight line.)


I sewed all the pieces in order.


Folded in half and sew up the sides.


Pulled it inside out through one of the holes I left for the draw string. (tricksy!)


I broke a needle sewing the draw string. Whoops!


But I fixed it! Yay for learning something else.


Drawstring in!


It's a great size for a sock knitting bag. I bet I'll make a bunch of these in all sorts of fabrics. Next time it hopefully won't take me all day though.



The zig zag was supposed to be the exterior, and the leaves the inside- but I cut the pieces wrong. Glad it turned out well though! Next time I may do the draw string in the same fabric as the interior, so it gets a bit more notice. But then again, it may have been *too* busy that way. Hmm..

Thanks for taking a look!
