Doggy Bag

Last year a friend of mine gifted me a fabulous little project bag that she had made herself. I love it! It's the perfect size for a lot of my projects, cinches closed to keep everything safe inside, and it has a great little strap to attatch it onto my purse, a belt loop, a camping or beach chair, or the handle in front of the front passenger seat in our SUV for easy access of knitting when I'm on the road.

I'm not the only one who loves this bag...she's had many requests to make them and even sold some in a local yarn shop. She's a little tired of making them. However, our knit group can't get enough of them and got together today for bag making lessons and a day of sewing fun! One of our terrific knitsters set up an ironing station and tables in her living room and we all brought our sewing machines and supplies. We had five sewing machines whirring along, making our very own bags. This one is mine...with adorable little doggies on it. I love it! I'm so happy have another bag and to know how to make more!

Thanks, Cally, for all your inspiration, instruction, and for sharing your fabulous bag pattern with all of us. Thanks, Steph, for having us into your beautiful home...again and's always so much fun. And, thanks to my knit buddies for your friendships and constant fun and inspiration! You ladies rock!
