When I can’t sew I take my knitting and have been using a large knitting bag for many years.
Besides it looking very tired it was too large for my trip overseas so when Andi Satterlund from Untangling Knots posted about Knitting at Parties, she shared a link for the perfect little knitting bag.
I have quite a bit of the Vera Bradley fabric in my “bag stash” and have used it previously making a Spice of Life bag which unfortunately stays in the cupboard. I’ve realised that even though I love the fabric I will enjoy it a lot more making accessories for my knitting.
I have used both the large floral and added the large border to add some interest to the side of the bag.
For the lining I used the smaller patterned fabric.
I cut a strip of the large floral and used the smallest Fasturn tube to make the cord.
This was the perfect size bag for my trip. I did take the cotton facecloth that I was knitting and a skein of wool as well as 2 pairs of interchangeable needles for my circular needles for the knitting class I did at the Sewing & Stitchery Expo
The facecloth is now finished and although not perfect I am feeling a lot more comfortable with the “continental style” of knitting.
