Hi everyone! I'm feeling a little under the weather, so I'm going to keep this pretty short. I wanted to share this, even though it isn't knitting/crocheting. As many of you know, I got a sewing machine for my birthday last year. I really haven't done a ton with it, other than purse linings. Since Tiki Oasis was coming up, and I had some tiki fabric lying around, I knew I wanted to try my hand at a box bag. I bought one awhile ago on Etsy, and it worked perfect for Tiki Caliente a few months ago. It not only held a small knitting project, but also my keys, phone and a little money.
I got down to work using this pattern. It seemed simple at first, but not having any experience following a pattern, I was a little lost until I called a friend and she explained it to me. It turned out a little lopsided, but it worked great! The pattern really is easy, once you make one and learn what each part makes on the bag. I can't wait to make another one. I know I could improve my work 110%. I'm sure if you have experience sewing, you could make this in no time flat! I can't remember who originally shared the pattern during an FO Friday, but I just wanted to say thank you! It fit everything I needed that weekend, including a shawl!
I think these make perfect gifts for not only the knitter/crocheter in your life, but anyone! Kids can use them as pencil cases/crayon holders. I think they're perfect as a small clutch type bag, or even a makeup bag for travel!
