A Little Knitting and A Lot of SewingPosted: June 13, 2006
I was without my sewing machine for about two and a half weeks, so when I got it back last Thursday, I went a tad overboard. This is what I made over the weekend:
Two reversible tote bags in pink
Matching pink travel tissue holders
Another reversible tote in red
A small Jordy Bag using the leftover fabric from my Madison Bag. I was pleasantly surprised to find that magnetic snaps are quite easy to put in. I actually like the purple fabric better on the outside, but I wanted to try something different.
In case you’re wondering, I’m not planning to keep any of these bags for myself! I had tons of fun sewing everything, but I definitely don’t need them. I’m either going to gift them or perhaps swap them.
And I started a new knitting project — the Blue Sky Alpacas Fitted Tank.
So far I like the Blue Sky Alpacas cotton yarn a lot because it isn’t splitty. This should be a quick knit, but only if I actually work on it, right? We’ll see if I can get it done and seamed within the next month!
