Another Bag – Perfect For Knitting Or Crochet


Whoop whoop!

I’m madly excited to tell you that, after two long days of revision after revision, the draft PDF pattern for my “Sew Retro Bag” has finally winged its way to the very obliging Lucie of Love, Lucie.

Lucie has kindly agreed to test the pattern for me before it goes on sale in my Folksy shop for the fantastic value price of just ยฃ3-99!!! (Update: Pattern available NOW in my shop – CLICK HERE)

Do you want a cheeky preview of the cover?

Of course you do!

Here it is, proudly displaying the large version which was designed specifically for holding those bigger projects such as quilts or crocheted blankets;


I designed a smaller version as well, for those who don’t need such a vast bag.

Perfect for yarn lovers carrying smaller crochet and knitting projects, the great “Knitty Sheep” fabric adds a whimsical touch.

The fabric was quilted by machine again before construction.


Here are both bags together showing the size variations;

I hope Lucie finds the pattern logical and easy to follow – it’s incredibly difficult, after forty years of sewing, to think like a beginner and document even the simplest of steps!

Watch this space for details about how to purchase the finished pattern and don’t forget to pop over to see how Lucie’s getting on with making the sewing bag!
