A new project bag and DNF socks.







While I was visiting my parents for reading week, I used my mum’s sewing machine to make a project bag from Noodlehead’s tutorial. I love how it turned out and I definitely want to make more of these in different sizes for other projects and notions! The tutorial is really detailed and easy to follow, even though I haven’t sewn in awhile. This was my first time using a zipper foot but it was pretty simple.

What else would I store in my new project bag but my current WIP? I’m still working on my Maeva socks! I started these as a Ravellenics project but definitely did not finish them before the end of the Olympics (in fact, I’m not even halfway through the first sock!). That’s alright- I knew that finishing them while I was off from school and busy at home would be a challenge and I’m still working on finishing them before the end of March for my 12 socks in 2014 challenge. The yarn is Cascade Heritage Sock in Navy and the pattern is free from Knitty.

Let me know in the comments what you’ve been knitting and sewing lately! Have a wonderful day.

I’ll be linking up with KCCO and Yarn-Along as usual, as well as Craftastic and Made by Me.


  1. The bag is adorable! I sewed a little pouch for notions last week. That bag might be next. I love how your sock looks so far, too. They will be lovely when they are done.

  2. Cute bag and those socks look lovely!

  3. I love the bag and the fabric you chose for it (and the fact that your knitting matches it!) A girl can never have too many bags.

  4. What an adorable bag and a beautiful rich blue wip!
    I’m working on socks as well but they’re for the boyfriend–neutral browns and greys are more his style. Jealous!

  5. Love the project bag, great work! Your socks look very promising, love the colour.

  6. Love the bag! And the sock pattern is gorgeous! I love sewing bags, but have never attempted a zipper…I probably should work on that 🙂

  7. I love the colour of your yarn! 🙂

    Your pouch is lovely! I hadn’t considered using a larger one as a project bag, I’ve only ever made them smaller.
