I used two fabrics and a solid for the lining. I had a scrap of fusible fleece so I used that to give it some stiffness. The quilting is simple wavy lines
this twill tape was perfect for the loops with some black ribbon for the tie
If (when) I make another one, I will add a couple more loops. This does make a rather cute star pattern however when pulled closed
My project bag ended up 10" tall and about 5" across. Simple, fun, and very useful : )
linking up with Needle and Thread Thursday
p.s. the wedding is tomorrow -- TOMORROW !
This is very FUN! You did a great job improvising, and I really dig your fabrics here. The best thing is you are using it!

Very cute and usable for so many different projects!
It sure appeals to my inner bag lady! Super cute, as always.
Cute bag. I frequently buy magazines for one pattern, or one recipe only.
Being a bag lady too, this appeals to me greatly! Lovely finish, Carla :)
That is an awesome bag!!! I love the fabrics you used too.
Great bag Carla! If you're using it, does that mean we can't use it for display at the store? ;)
Way to cute and practical at the same time.....love it.
Hi Carla! I love your NEW knitting bag! So beautiful, fun and practical, too! Fabrics are also perfect! x Teje
That is rather nifty Carla! And to think you designed this just by seeing a picture in a magazine!! Clever girl!
What a great bag. the fabric is perfect!! I cannot believe you just 'whipped it up' I have a fear of making bags, but love seeing what others make!
Well done on the knitting bag, Carla! Love the fabrics chosen.
Wow! Wedding day tomorrow!
How did it get here so quickly?
Congrats to the Happy Couple and to the Parents!
So clever! I love how you put fabrics together, you've got such a good eye. And that twill tape is awesome!
I can see how that would be perfect for crochet and knitting – being able to draw the yarn through the top while the ball stays neat and clean in the bag.
How clever and adorable, Carla! I see many more baby hats and socks in your future!!
Oh, I love that little bag!! (And I’ve been coveting the fabric you used too.) I’m going to have to see if we can get that magazine here in the US since my sister would LOVE this bag. (She’s a knitter who actually carries it with her.)
PS - I’m so impressed you blogged before this weekend! ROCK. STAR.
A great little bag, perfect for knitting projects!
I love the idea of those little tabs on the top.
This is a great bag. I think I need to make more project bags or, maybe start fewer projects.... :)
Great bag. Hope the wedding went well. I showed the signature quilt top to my future daughter-in-law. She LOVED it and wants me to make one for their wedding. I bought some fabrics to get started this weekend. Now to find some letter fonts I can use. Rest after the wedding. You deserve it.
Great make Carla, I love it
Fun project bag, so clever! Love the tabs!
