A Little Diversion

I made a little detour into the sewing world this week. When I saw this sweet little bag tutorial posted I knew I just had to make one. Long ago I dabbled with quilting, so I have a tiny little stash of fat quarters, and this was a snap to whip up during an extended naptime.

It is very wee - just big enough to hold a skein of yarn, or if I let the blues in it remind me of you know who, then perhaps a couple little tea samples? I had fun browsing my little fabric stash, and just might whip up a few more - I think they'd be handy to have around for impromptu gift containers.

That's really cute! And I have some of that dark blue fabric myself.

That is very cute. You can certainly increase the amount of fabric and make it bigger. And having them around for gift containers is a great idea.

I love it! I am so going to dig through my fabric and make one. I made a larger bag last week, I have photos and will post it tomorrow or the next day. Something about spring sunshine makes me want to sew.

That's cute! The shape reminds me of the French Market Bag, only fabric!

I want to sew. I have stacks of fat quarters, japanese fabrics in cotton and silk, random pieces of jacquard, batting, pins, even a nice little sewing machine! Yet I do not have the courage to sew. I'll knit anything you hand me, but sewing... not so much.

But THIS... this I may have to try...

awwww, geez, that's cute! It looks just like a little china bowl. But softer. :-)

that ought to hold a rolling ball of yarn steady. SO cute.
