It was nice to sew with new fabric for a change.
The idea was to create a knitting bag. The request was for "something to carry projects in that looks better than the current grocery bag that I'm using". It wasn't tough to improve on a grocery bag, but I'm not a knitter.
Every bag needs a zippered pocket somewhere. In this case, I thought maybe she would carry those little knitting counter thingy-s, or cable thingy-s or circular needles. I don't really know.
I do know that knitters occasionally use those pointy sticks. On the inside I made long sleeves to store some of those pointy sticks. It's hard to see, but they had to be angled in order to make the bag a smaller size. I didn't want the bag as deep as the needles.
This is the only thing that makes this bag different than a regular book bag or messenger bag. It's silly to be proud of my knitting needle pockets, but there you have it. I'm silly.
