To celebrate my renewed love of knitting, a new project bag was needed. A few changes were needed from my original one. I still wanted a shallow rectangular shape but with shoulder straps and an ability for closure. Coordinating (and rather bold) Amy Butler fabrics were used. She's a big mama at 17 inches across and 7 inches deep. It could have been a bit deeper but my anal self wanted whole medallions on either side :)
Inside are several pockets to organize pencils and accessories. Afterwards, I wished I added a elasticized side pocket to hold a skein (so it would not roll around and get tangled).
I was inspired (by another bag, but can't remember where I saw it) to have the straps run along the top edge.
A wee tummy tuck to keep the sides from winging out. If only my excess flab could be so easily dealt with :(
A wide tab with a magnetic closure to keep it closed. An elastic loop (I still haven't added the matching buttom) at the end so I could have a tighter closure when needed.
Now onto my finishing my Rebecca Apricot inspired sweater!
