I saw a tutorial a few days ago for this boxy sort of bag. I’d been seeing them around the net and had been wanting to make one. While I was at Walmart, I found some cheap fabric ($2/yard), so I bought 1/2 of a yard of two fabrics to make one along with some matching thread and a zipper. Today, I finally sat down and made it. It’s a bit fussy to do, but I like the results a lot! Total, this project cost me around $4 – how sweet is that? I love good deals :o)
Here’s the completed bag:
Yellow isn’t a color I’d normally pick, but I really liked the gold/brown of the outter fabric (I think it’s some sort of upholstery fabric, it’s rather thick and canvas like). I love it! It’s about 9 inches long and 4 inches tall and wide. It’s currently holding Wisp, which fits great inside. I may make another at some point, but I think I have quite a few project bags right now. Maybe it’s time to make a tote or two!
I think next weekend I’m going to invest in a rotary cutter and mat. I have a 50% off coupon and JoAnn’s sells Fiscars Rotary Cutting set that comes with the mat, rotary cutter, and clear ruler. It’s also fairly big (18" x 24") which I think will serve all my sewing needs well.
Don’t worry, though – I haven’t been completely sucked into the sewing world. I’m still knitting. Here’s proof:
I started it on Wednesday and felted it last night. It’s still drying and I want to sew in a liner, so I may not do an FO report right away on it, but the knitting part is all done!
Hope everyone is having a good weekend. I’m off to the library with my sister :o)
