My old amazing project bag is a bit warn and the handles are literally threads and falling in pieces so I decided it was high time to make a few new ones. First up was this fabric I saved for something like this, it was supposed to become a Oddvars penestre kofta but I didn’t feel it and instead of ripping out this amazing fabric, I felted it in hope of using it in a special sewing project. Having seen so many beautiful bags lately on pods I felt inspired to try something new and created this pattern to use every cm of my hand knit fabric.
The bottom and the cord casing is in coordinating twill and the inside in a stunning blue Chambray, intended to become a summer blouse but since that hasn’t happened yet and it was perfect for this project, I went ahead anyway.
It is a medium sized bag, perfect size for everyday use, it will hold a small to medium project comfortably or an adult sweater if you really want to. It is currently stuffed full of an aran weight sweater in progress for me (including all yarn). I wanted leather handles but haven’t been able to source the leather yet and as I really wanted to get going I thought that I can add it later when I have found a source I feel comfortable in supporting.
