An adventure in sewing

As if my list of time consuming hobbies wasn’t long enough, I signed up for a sewing class at The Stitch House to make an Amy Butler Sophia Bag. The instructor told me this was a hard one, and she was right! Well, it wasn’t so much hard as it was time consuming…lots of pieces to cut out…and that piping made things tricky. But I did it and the bag came out awesome! My sister was the lucky recipient and now my mom and friend want one. What have I done?!

I had some fabric left over when I was done so I decided to whip up a spindle/sock knitting bag tonight. This was definitely more my speed…much easier! It’s a little too girly for me to use though so I put it up for sale in my Etsy shop. It’s the perfect size for a spindle and some fiber or a small knitting project to take on the road. The bottom is reinforced to stand up to the sharpest of spindle shaft and knitting needles. I’m really proud of both bags!
