Knitting Bag the Next Generation, A Snowy Day Project

It is snowing and snowing here today. I actually had planned to leave the house today but the plans quickly changed when it snowed all morning.

So Henry and I both put on some cozy clothes to spend the day indoors. I spent the morning sewing up this new, improved knitting bag. The main improvement over the old one is it stands up by itself like a knitting basket while in the house. I made it the same way I made these toy buckets which were based off these from Homemade by Jill. And then when I want to do some knitting on the go I can just grab it by the handles and off I go, nothing to transfer. It turned out a bit bigger and sloppier than I had planned and I don't know why I thought it would look kind of cool that the two fabrics don't match. But oh well, maybe there is a third generation of knitting bags in my future.

Ready to go:
Here is the inside, I tried a zipper pocket for the first time which turned out to be pretty easy.
And just to show that I don't spend more time making knitting bags than actually knitting, here is a picture of me in my new winter headband that I just finished. I used this pattern.
And here is what I did all afternoon, once the sewing bag was done. Sat next to it and knit.

And played with Henry too of course.

  1. I love the knitting bag. And I know what you mean - to sew the containers to knit or do other crafts or actually knit.
