I’m Sewing!

I’ve been a good girl. I didn’t look at floor looms or weaving stuff. And only once admired Laura’s new Saxony spinning wheel at Knit Night. It’s beautiful and amazingly quiet. But not something I have to have. 

I did get back to sewing projects for SSK door prizes. Of course, I started with a new idea. It’s not perfect yet. One is being tested with two color brioche knitting. So far she is happy using it like a yarn bowl.

However, I’m stuck on solving the wrist/handle problem. I might need to let this marinate for a week.

The second project, two Japanese knot bags will be done before next Knit Night.

The third project, slouchy hobo bag might be done by the end of the week. 

The fourth project, my second version of a cross body bag is marinating on Blue Gal. I’ve been using version one. Love the comfort, but it needs more capacity and pockets.  Since version two is already cut and mostly sown, I need to solve the volume modifications creatively. I think I’ll have to add a gusset at the bottom.  (I just can’t waste expensive fabric.)

Ok, at the moment, it looks like half Wilma Flintstone dress.
