it just so happens that my color affection quickly outgrew the box bag i was using to contain it. i modified the in color order drawstring bag tutorial to make a lace project bag.
i love this bunny fabric so much. i also used some riley blake dots, DS quilts dots for the lining, and a moda bella solid for the ties. it's not pictured but my FQ wasn't quite large enough so i added a strip of riley blake ice cream to the bottom. i made the bag larger to accommodate a decent-sized knitting project but i ran into a snafu. i modified the pattern to cut out squares to make the gussets but my brain wasn't functioning correctly and i made the squares too large. the gussets are twice as deep as they should be so the bag is wider and less tall than i had envisioned. fortunately the shawl still fits in there just fine.
i like using my favorite fabrics for everyday things that i actually use, like my new ironing board cover, my wallet, and this bag. as much as i'd like to save all my favorites for quilts, i think i'll get to enjoy them this way much more.
