I found some pretty denim fabric that has been in the stash for quite a long time and decided to use it.
I used an existing tote bag as a pattern and also as the lining to which I sewed a pocket on each side to hold books.
|Took apart corner of bag to measure|
|Bag with corners undone to make pattern from|
|Foam Board covered with fabric|
|Cylinder holder for working yarn with velcro closure to hold different size skeins.|
|Shows hooks in stitched down pockets; velcro at top that folds over the hooks|
|Two sides folded over each other and fastened with straps velcroed together.|
It took me a week to sew/create pattern for this bag and accessories.....I enjoyed the challenge....but needed to exercise a lot a patience during the many undo's and redo's that occurred during the creating process!
I was able to use it in the past couple days and really like how the working yarn sits in the bag as I use it.... It is a sturdy yet soft bag.....All done!!!!!!!!!
|Working yarn on left side sitting in its cylinder pocket, great book Crochet 101 in book pocket, and hook wallet sitting inside. (The other side pocket is for the great book Crochet Stitch Bible that I recently ordered from Alibris, and is on the way........) You can also see the closure over the pocket the book is in.|
|Bag and accessories....I made an extra wallet (to left ouside the bag) to hold the crochet stitch markers.|
Happy Creating, Happy Sewing, and Have a Joyful Week!
