Craft bag






















I have been busy doing a lot of things today, but nothing that I can show yet. I bought a bunch of beautifuk pearls that I want to transform into a necklace, another bag I'm sewing and most importantly I have to wow Katharina from Whiff of joy so she offers me a DT spot in the future ;) I have been lucky enough to get randomly picked as the guest designer at the challenge blog. I only have until tuesday night due to spamfolders so I need to step on it.
But for now I want to show you a bag I made last week to hold my yarns, crochet hooks and some tools. I made it all from scratch so I'm thinking about making a tutorial for it. Would you be interested?
Here are some close-ups:
 
There are two pockets on one side and one big on the other.


 
 I saved the pretty fabric by sewing the inside of the pocket in cheaper one-coloured fabric.















 I made a fancy edge with the brown fabric and handles to match. Wasn't sure if I really needed the handles, but thought I might just as well sew them on in case I want to use the bag for something else. It's very useful, think I will have to sew another one :) It was quite easy to do to. Perfect for a beginner.
