Knitting bag

Dear Shayne,

I made this knitting bag last week for my friend Rachael. It's a very basic bag, but I love this fabric so much that I will really miss it when it's all gone.

I usually just leave knitting bags wide open, but I felt like trying out a closure on this one and I'm pleased with how it came out... especially because I've never done a button closure before and I didn't decide to do it until the very last minute.

One button seemed a little boring, so I stacked two on top of each other. Yay!

There are also some pockets inside the bag, but it was just too dang dark to get a photo in there. So you'll just have to use your imagination on that bit.

Yummy! What kind of fabric did you use for the inside? It looks velvety in the picture.

It's just 100% cotton, but it has sort of a washed/brushed look to the pattern. It was really pretty and I forgot all about it until I was looking for something to line this bag. It worked great.

I recognize that fabric! ;-)

I love the double buttons - so cute!

Yup, Dawn. Same fabric inside of *your* knitting bag. ;)

Thanks for the double-button love. I was a little nervous about it, but I think it came out great.
