Sewing a Knitting Project Bag

I don't like to keep my yarn in plastic bags.
There's just something about the idea of plastic against those 
wonderfully luxurious fibers that bothers me.
……and, I also don't like zippers close to my knitting,
so I make my own project bags with drawstrings.
I have a lot of different sized bags, according to the project,
and since I also have a LOT of hand-dyed fabrics,
I make many bags - for myself.

This is the latest bag,
and I am so in love with it.
The drawstrings are long enough
that when my project is snug inside,
I can pull the strings together and use them as a handle.

and as you can see,
it is just the right size for a shawl to fit inside nicely!

Thanks for popping by!

Peace and love to you and yours!

Gorgeous fabric, Judy, and a lovely pattern. I think you are the busiest person I know! xxx

The fabric is gorgeous and I love the design. I remember my Gram had a white, woven drawstring purse for church. I think Miss Maggie might need a bag for her girly stuff. :)

This is a great bag! Is the base a circle or a rectangle? I have a circular jewelry case that looks similar...am thinking of expanding on it to made a project bag, too.
