I did keep to the idea of using scraps, as this was all made with fabric I already had. You may notice my favourite vintage curtain fabric. I still have a whole untouched curtain of this fabric, so it may well turn up again. I love the gentle green, and the fact it is genuinely old, gives it a lovely soft feel. The cream is leftover fabric from some chair covers that I made.
The bag is made from a free tutorial from Craftsy. This is the first time I have followed a Craftsy lesson, and I'm sure will not be the last. It was very nice been shown all the sewing techniques, and it was easy to download the video and the paper pattern etc. I think this is going to be so useful for my knitting projects, and I can see myself making other bags for storage. Can you see the special pockets for my knitting needles?
