Hello! This is my first foray into the Purses, Bags, Wallets section!

I got it into my head a few weeks ago to make some sort of small tote bag that I could keep my current sock-knitting project in, thus I looked up the Jordy Tute and made this one!



And then I was like "Hey! This is easy! And boy do I ever have a thing for purses! I should make my own! Faster than knitting and felting one!" And thus Came my first real purse!





The small tote was made from a bunch of fabric my mom had - the outside is a pair of sheets from the 70's. The inner fabric is the large amount of leftovers from when my mom made curtians and such for my room when I was a baby (and I'll be 23 next week) The actual purse's outer fabric was some fat quarters from the quilting section with some sturdy interfacing fused on and the lining was more leftover baby-room fabric. There was going to be a pocket, but I forgot to sew it in, and also messed it up.  Cheesy

I know! I love the fabric on the first one too - sadly there isn't much of it left, Mom made some stuff with it.

And thanks about the neatness - I was such a stickler for everything being straight and even! I hate it when stuff's crooked.

Your knitting bag is the perfect size for socks! You did a super job on both bags.
