Hot off the sewing machine for my friend's daughter!  She'll be 11 next month and is a brand new knitter.  She told her mom she'd like a knitting bag and I jumped on the chance to make something special for her.

I didn't have a pattern, just dimensions and sketches I did before starting my project. 

Made with denim for the outside.  The purple fabric is something I had in my stash.  I'm not sure what it's made of, but it's pretty heavy and feels like it could be upholstery fabric.  I used some unattractive corduroy in place of interfacing. 

The straps are made as one continuous piece, like a big loop.  They hold the pocket down.  The pocket was sewn top and bottom, right sides together then turned.  It goes all the way around, but I sewed stop lines just above the fold line for the bottom.  2 pockets on the inside, too.

I'm really pleased with the finish product.  I may have to make another one!

I made the buttons for her too.  They're various manga characters she likes, as well as a personalized and knitting button.
