Knitting Bag Set

Here it is!The knitting needle roll
with pockets for needles and a flap to tuck needles under...

and the yarn/project holder which has a handy strap to slide over your wrist while knitting
It was a fun set to make because I made them from scratch without a pattern, the bag and the roll turned out how I had planned, but with some struggles the yarn bag (essentially a 'drawstring' bag), turned out even better then I had envisioned... gotta love that!

My First Bag: Hobo Style

I'm so stinkin' proud of myself, I'm almost bursting at the seams! I was so intimidated to try this, but it was much easier then I thought. I followed the wonderful "How-To" at she has so many great how-to's and tips I lOve her site. Click here for the link directly to the Hobo Bag.

Zipper application... scares the you-know-what out of me, but with jcaroline- piece of cake! Seriously! I wish patterns gave you great tips like this!

I loved the bag, but it was a little plain, so I added some dimension with this super cute fabric flower. Officially my favorite purse of the week! Now go make one for yourself!
