    New Knitting Bag!

    I have a couple of favourite friends that I love to go fabric shopping with. We like to pick a project then go shopping and then get together to sew.

    It's funny how different our projects turn out to be.

    Last weekend we made bags. We drove down to Skagway (Alaska) and picked out fabrics for a new bag. My one friend picked gorgeous dark denim blue fabrics with seashells...my other picked beige and rusty coloured batiks. I being the least elegant of the trio picked some fun fabrics and made a new bag to hold my knitting!!!

    Danger, woman knitting!!!

    I think you made a great choice. Sheep for their wool and skulls and crossbones for all the mistakes we make.

    First thanks everyone, it's just such a fun bag.

    Suze, the pattern is called Alaskan tote with a Twist! It's a store pattern from Rushin' Tailor's Quilt Alaska ( www.quiltalaska.com ).

    Sandra, I bought these grommets right at the quilt shop www.quiltalaska.com (Rushin' Tailer's QuiltAlaska) when I bought the pattern.

    Oh I should mention, this is the smaller bag, the larger one doesn't have grommets but sewn in straps. My friends made the larger one to take camping (can hold towels and all the things needed for when finding the showers at the campgrounds).

    Either way, you only need 1 yd of fabric for the body (I used two half yards and b/c I did the smaller one I had lots left over) and 1 yd for the lining. and 1/4 yd for the strap.

    Neat bag! Thank you for the quilt shop web address. I have an adopted Eskimo daughter and I am raising her daughter, so the Eskimo patterns are something I watch for. By the way I like your first name! LOL

    I love the fabric, great bag! I have been to Skagway once, took the White Pass train up the mountain. Awesome!

    That is really cute - and I personally would have picked exactly the same fabrics even though I'm a crocheter and not a knitter. You just don't find crochet fabric too often..

    Is it made like this one? It reminds me of this but using strips instead of squares...

    I like yours better - made with strips. It's really sharp

    No, it's a bit different and the way that the bag is sewn, it's given a little twist with a method by Lisa Moore (Alaskan quilt artist). She helped the shop out by showing them a way to piece it similar to the way her twist quilts are made (so the store person told me). Its a pretty easy technique once you look at it and one I may use in future bags just to help structure it.

    I am a knitter too. I love the sheep fabric and colors.
    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.

    Very cool!
    A dog is not "almost human" and I know of no greater insult to the canine race than to describe it as such.
