Bags

I've been sewing a bit more recently. I'm a little jealous of everyone's cute project bags. I have a couple that I've made but not enough to hold all my projects. I have quite the accumulation of novelty fabrics so I put a few of them to work.

New knitting bag @soveryshannon box tote

I've had my eye on this box tote since I saw Anna from Noodlehead's. I didn't have enough fabric for the pockets so I skipped them. The exterior is a Michael Miller hedgehog fabric and the interior is Cotton + Steel.

Funny story: As I was cutting this out, I was talking to Spicy and not focused 100% on what I was doing. I pulled out what I thought was fusible fleece to interface my bag but discovered after I'd finished cutting the pieces that it was actually Insulbrite. I didn't want to toss such large pieces so I just went ahead and used it. I guess in a pinch if I can't find any potholders, I'll know what to grab.

OK it's confirmed. I'm definitely on a bag making kick @sotakhandmade

I have these hair clips that had been sitting in my bathroom in the plastic bag they originally came in. Every day they would spill out and make a mess and every day I would tell myself to make a little drawstring bag to hold them. and now I finally did it. I used Sotak handmade's tutorial, some Bento Box fabric for the exterior, a strip of Laurie Wisbrun fabric for the top (the collection with the polar bears), and a red ta-dot for the interior. I skipped interfacing and labels since this will just live in my bathroom. I recycled the twill tape that comes with FQ bundles for the ties. I knew I had a reason for keeping them.

Awesome mail day

I have 2 other bags on my list still to make but I haven't gotten around to it yet. I had purchased this fabric from Jacey's destash, but there wasn't quite enough of it to make a knitting bag. I searched etsy for sushi fabric bags and this set popped up. I bought it from Chicken Soup Designs because her bags were so cute and very reasonably priced for the entire set. I'm really happy with the purchase--the bags are nicely made and I'm already using the notions pouch on my current projects.
