Find an old shirt to use for the lining, cut around the edges giving space for a folded hem.
|Pin in place and cut out a pocket for handy ready made storage.|
|Sew Lining in place - I hand sewed.|
Once the lining is in place, attach the pocket.
Now sew up the four sides and add a magnetic clasp to finish.
My new 2.5mm Knit Pros fit in just perfectly.
|Soliloquy Sox has a new home!|
|Ready to go when ever :)|
Changes I would make next time!1) Get two balls of yarn for a bigger bag. This is just about big enough for a sock WIP.
2) Use a sewing machine for the lining. (I haven't used mine for about 15 years and I'm a bit scared of it now).
3) Originally I was going to add handles but I decided a clutch bag would be better as handles would get in the way.
Other things to make with Frilly Yarn!I love Vicky Featherstonehaugh's Cushion Cover pattern - this one was for a friend's daughter.
This one was for me.
I also used the same pattern with Sirdar Fizzy for same friend's daughter.
There is definitely more to these yarns than scarves!
