It was created after me lusting over knitting project bags from knitting podcasts and the like.
These handmade bags are normally $25-$35 online, so I decided to dabble with the sewing machine again to make my own since I had leftover fabric from all sorts of things.
Then came ambition.
I decided to scour the Walmart fabric section to see if, by chance, they had a pattern for the type of project bag that I've been seeing.
They actually did! And I took the last one. (Ok, well, two different pattern packets...but more on that another time.)
Ha. Ha. Ha. Ha. Ha.
I managed. Eventually.
The pattern photo left out a few important details, like: it has an "outside" pocket! Or it has a divider! These are nice, but unnecessary features for me that confused me in the end without a clear photo visual.
I'm back to knitting though, my brain needs a rest! I'm not used to thinking and scratching my head so much while doing patterns! ;)
Here's a funny thing. I decided to sew my own bags to save myself money. How much money did I spend on tools, hardware, different fabric, etc.? Um, probably 4-5 times the amount of a bag sold online! Life of a crafter, I say.
