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.
