Nifty project bag!

Did you guys notice that I haven't done a single sewing project in a long time?? Yes. Its true that I didn't touch my sewing machine for more that 2 months and that's a long time in my book! So last night, after what felt like ages, I dusted my sewing machine and brought it out of hibernation and I made this:

I used the tutorial from Kate Davies on Needled available here: Two Kate Project bag I used my own measurements and added some modifications of my own. I added inner pockets all around the insides of the bag and boxed the bottom corners of the bag to give it some shape. Here is a peek at the insides:

This bag will be perfect for me to carry a medium to large size project and right now my Aase Shawl is residing in it. I am making it with Knitpicks Shadow in a blue-green color. The idea for making a project bag came to me when I wanted to knit a repetitive pattern and walk at the same time.. I interfaced the lining fabric with a light-weight fusible interfacing. Here is a view from the top..

Its a perfect project bag and it can be made in any size. I am sure I will find good use for it. I am glad to get my sewing mojo back. Its a simple project to ease myself back into sewing.. Here is the bag on my arms!

Hope you guys are doing good..
