Sew What! Bags

So, on Saturday a group of us girls got together to do a little sewing! I was very excited to use my machine again and hopefully get some tips/tricks from some more experienced sewers. We decided to make 'project bags' which, in the knitting/crocheting world, are just bags that hold 1 or 2 knitting/crocheting projects that are being worked on (so you can tote along your project wherever you go). But really, the bags could be used for just about anything.

We had SO much fun and it really helped that we were all working on the bags together...I felt like I learned a lot and actually finished something that isn't hideous! Haha :) And, I tried to make another one today, by myself and it turned out pretty cute too! They're definitely not perfect, but I feel great about making progress!

The bag with the *cute* owls is the one I made yesterday and the hearts one is today's:

Aren't the fabrics just so cute?! But folks, fabric is NOT cheap...cute fabric, anyway ;)

They both have drawstrings to tighten up the top, like this:

What do ya think?

My friend Jenn and I are really wanting to make a bunch of them to sell on Etsy or at craft fairs...and we've got lots of other patterns/projects that we want to accomplish as well!

So, stay tuned for more craftiness coming your way! ;)


  1. Who knew you would be become so crafty! Very proud of you!
