Yarn pod knitting bag: a pattern
A few weeks ago I found this adorable purse (read knitting project bag) tutorial on Pinterest. Last weekend I gathered materials and started cutting up fabric. It was fabulous… until I realized that there is a limit to my success when I ‘wing it’ :
It did look similar to the panels in the tutorial… but there was just something about it that I couldn’t put my finger on. So, I took a little break.
Once I cooled off (and knit half a mitten) I realized that there is nothing wrong with making a pattern (even though I reeeeaaaaalllly didn’t want to) and finally, two days later, I was ready to make the effort.
And what a difference!
The second one worked out so well that I made two more, quilted them, bound them, installed a zipper and sewed them together, all in two days!
The final product is super cute, and just the right size; fits my yarn ball and mits quite perfectly!
If you want to make one too, I’ve spared you the trouble of making your own pattern – voila, my pattern in pdf. Cut pieces include 1/4″ seam allowance. Don’t forget to send me pictures if you decide to tackle it too!
