Japanese Knot Bags and a Little Giveaway.......
As I was checking out patterns yesterday for these bags and making one up, I decided that the design for the smaller loop was too difficult to sew properly. The opening was just too small and the end result wasn't pleasing.
So, to the drawing board I went and decided that sewn on handles would be much, much better. I also preferred a straight edge along the top - more like a tote.
And of course, something extra needed to be added to make the bags unique. A simple flower was the trick. Now I'm ready to start sewing and making these little bags for our Etsy shop. Gosh are they perfect for knitting projects!
The original design is like this and the first knot bag turned out pretty good, but I'll stick with my own design.
And because this was my first attempt, I thought it would be fun to have a little giveaway for this one. If you love to sew, you'll love the fabric that has spools of thread and other sewing notions all over it. Just leave a comment with your contact info and on Saturday, July 20th I'll randomly draw one name to win this little "Japanese Knot Bag." Good luck and I'll see you then.
