I am always looking for little pouches and project-minded bags to meet my crafting needs. More often than not, I make something on the fly, but when I run across a great tutorial I must try it. This is what happened when KayStir sent me the free tutorial for Very Shannon’s Reversible Sock Knitting Project Bag. I decided to use two fabrics from Vibes & Scribes. Knowing I was making this for my friend Marseille who loves purple, I chose two lilac-minded prints. One was a lilac gingham and the other was a floral print.
I followed her tutorial, but also added iron-on interfacing to lend structure to the bag. Shiny side down! Also, I made my bag larger.
I sewed the project bag in one afternoon after using a quiet morning to wash, iron, and add interfacing to a multitude of about-to-be-sewn fabrics in my arsenal.
The result was ideally suited. And quite large. Project bag? Soccer ball carrier? It is reversible AND versatile!
This was for Marseille’s birthday, so I was glad it turned out so well. You can read more about the rest of the care package I sent to Marseille for her birthday in this post from a few months ago.
And a couple close-up looks at the fabrics I used…
