Sew, What?

I never seem to have enough project bags for all my knitting. I have used plastic zipper bags in the past when I’ve run out of real bags but they are only practical for projects kept at home. I wanted something nicer that would be good for taking out of the house. I found this tutorial online and decided to give it a try. It’s not my first attempt at sewing but I will say I have sewn less than 10 projects in the past and maybe 2 of those turned out usable. They were no where near perfect. The same can be said for this box bag I made. It’s the first zipper project ever. Overall it turned out OK and is perfectly usable. It’s just the details I’m unhappy with. First I’d like a smaller bag. Next time I’ll but a smaller zipper since that is the key to the sizing. I’d also like a narrower handle. This one is very large and feels uncomfortable in my hand. But I am pleased that I was able to take a pile of fabric, thread and a zipper and turn it into something I can actually use. I’m sure I’ll try this again.

    It looks great! Zippers are one of the harder things to learn in sewing. Yours looks super.
    Isn’t it fun to take flat fabric and turn it into something 3D? 😀
