wrap it up bag, urban home goods edition
Here’s the second half of my projects for the urban goods home swap. It took me forever to settle on just exactly what I wanted to make. I had another idea in mind for a while and then as soon as Penny released her new Wrap it Up Bag pattern, I knew it was just the ticket.
I used up pretty much ever spare scrap of the fabrics I had leftover after making the sewing machine cover, so it was really an adventure in patchwork. Even the some small cutting errors I made ended up being something I really liked in the end.
I added in some hand stitching to the front of the bag, just because I love how it adds that little special something to the project. I also included an interior pocket. I’m hoping it’ll work for my swap partners knitting bag, but I think it’ll be a really functional bag no matter what she chooses to do with it.
Of course the handy little feature I love most about the Wrap it Up Bag pattern is the little snap closure, perfect for rolling up and tossing it in your purse – once I make one for myself I know I’ll never be without a re-usable bag.
