Project Bags, do you use them? A sale in my Etsy shop!!

Project Bags
If you read my recent post on the many projects I need to finish off, you may have noticed the pile of project bags. How do you tote around your current knitting projects? I used to do a Zip-Lock bag, back in the day. Now I collect bags made by sewers I like, such as  Amy Beth of Fat Squirrel Fiber, Arryn of Bling Your String, Slipped Stitch Studio, Birdleg Bags and Stitched by Jessalu


Projects bags are cool! They hold your knitting, your pattern, and tools. Having a cute bag means you may be more apt to grab it as you head out the door. Do you have a favorite bag? What shape and size do you prefer? Have you tried making any yourself? If you aren't handy or inclined to deviate from the knitting, go and peruse the shops I listed above. Or have a look around my Etsy shop, I will be doing a promotion for the month of June.

Because I enjoy having a bag for my projects, it recently spurred me to try making some myself. I enjoy shopping for fabrics, linings and notions, and I love that I am sewing again! Here is a small selection of what I have made so far. Custom orders are available if I have the the fabric in stock. Some prints are limited, once they are sold, the print is retired.
