It did not take long and I am reasonably happy with them, I will be tweaking the pattern to make a longer one. I like to knit on the longest needles for sleeves and fronts and do not want the needles poking through the fabric.
The first one, 12" long, 9"wide by 4" tall, because it is soft it is very flexible and will hold loads.
The lining is a cotton lawn remnant.
It held this lot easily, I like to have a little pouch for scissors, tape measure, sewing up needles and so on handy.
This is some of my Texas wildflower fabric, I made the handle shorter and put it on the zipper pull end.
I think that it is much neater this way.
The lining is almost the last of this cotton lawn print.
I also altered the box corner size to make it wider and shorter.
13" long, 9 1/2" wide and 3 1/2" tall.
Again the handle is shorter and on the zipper pull end.
The lining is a yellow polka dot on white.
I will be cutting fabric later to try another size, I am not that hot on the maths involved but making these has given me insight as to what to do next.
The weather here is a bit dull today, warm though and very little wind. I will be pottering in the garden later, I need to get some new potatoes for dinner and maybe a spring cabbage. Much as I love my salads it is lovely to have hot veg, specially when it is from the garden. There may even be some carrots. I also have strawberries to pick and possibly some rhubarb to pull.
Now it is time to get the kettle on, all this photography is thirsty work.
PS. Does nobody fancy joining in the parcel round robin started off by Mum?
Perhaps if I put one of the knitting bags in someone might be interested in joining in.
Let me know, I am easily persuaded.
