hi!

i made 2 knitting bags since my knitting is always all over the place and i thought it would be nice to have a propper bag for it (need more bags for other projects now, wish i could pull myself together and do only ONE THING at a time, i am hopeless) and wanted to show you since i always enjoy looking at all the tutorials and pictures on craftster but am too lazy most of the time to upload my pics Embarrassed so i thought i try to get better.

the first one is for myself:





and the second one for my aunt, she loves pink and cats so i thought good idea to use the hello kitty fabric





i made a tiny little pouch/ purse to go with it for the needle and stitch markers


it is really tiny


i kind of used this great tutorial here

http://dragoknit.blogspot.com/2007/02/box-bag-tutorial.html

but changed the handle and the size in general, mine are far bigger (well, a few inches) so obviously i used longer zippers. the measurements given worked out great for a make up gab when i tried it the first time!

thanks for looking, mara

Nicely done, and such a good idea!  Of course, I have about a zillion or so tote bags I could use to store various crafts in, but that is so...boring.  I need to make some new bags!  The fabric on the one for you is so cute, too! Smiley

Those look great!  I especially like the fabric you used to make the first one.

I'm always in need of a good Knitting bag.....or ten? Smiley

thanks dragon*fly Smiley it was not my idea though, i think i found the link to the tutorial on the sew mama sew blog and they said it would be great for this kind of thing. sew mama sew is brilliant Smiley

thank you too legerdemain! and these are reallt quick to make! i think the shape is just perfect to store knitting. oh and i have to say i am not too keen on the hello kitty fabric but i had to use it for something so this was the oportunity Wink
