I have a lot of ideas for different bags I want to sew. Unfortunately, I don't seem to find time to actually sit at my sewing machine. This weekend I finally squeezed in an hour and made a tiny little bag that was sorely needed.
In case you might not have noticed, I knit a lot of socks. I like to have a bunch of sock needles with me whenever I travel (which is a lot, recently). Although I do have cases for my straight and circular needles, I've been carrying around my DPNs in this.
Notice the saftey pin on the top? That's to keep the needles from falling out. There's so many stuffed in there that the top keeps gapping open. Yeah, charming.
So I made this.
Much better! And it has room for even more needles, if i were to need that. I actually started taking pictures to make a tutorial on how to make this, but I didn't plan far enough ahead with the actual design of the bag. When I sewed the opening shut (in the process of making a buttonhole), I gave up the picture taking. I'll have to get back to you on that one! Unless you want to make an entire bag, screw it up, and then cannibalize the screwed-up bag to make a second good one...
Oh, well. It worked for me.
