Sewing Saturday

A couple of weeks ago my knit group gathered for a sewing day and made project bags. It was so much fun and got me sewing again...something I love to do but just hadn't done in a while. Today was full of sewing fun! I started out by working on a top (I usually don't sew clothes, but I was inspired recently by the "Made by Rae" blog). I had to set that project aside though as I've ran into a little problem that I'll need some help with. But, I didn't want to stop sewing. So, I pulled out some fabric that was left over from a quilt I made a couple of years ago and made another project bag. Here's how it turned out...


I made this one a little taller to better accomodate my knitting needles. And, since I don't know how to make button holes (thanks, Cally, for making the button hole on my last bag), I used a grommet for the drawstring. You can see it in this picture, along with the velcro strap that works great for attaching the bag to my purse, belt loop, camping chair, etc...


I decided to try a square bottom on this one...


Now I have a project bag to go with the knitting needle case that I made about a year ago...


Here's a peek at the inside of the case...


Sew much fun!!!

Ohhhh, that case (and the bag) is so spiffy. You are slowly putting some sewing inspiration into me.
