What am I doing for SOS 08?

Why, sewing box bags, of course. ;o) You know, in order to be a productive SOS sock knitter, you need a pretty bag to put the sock *in*.

Prior to leaving for our overnight camping trip, I decided that I absolutely had to have a new project bag. Didn’t matter that I needed to pack a camper or air out a camper or check to see if a camper was registered (it wasn’t, but that’s another story for another day), I needed a bag and I needed it right. now.

My first attempt was a bit on the wonky side:


Please ignore the computer desk mess…

I didn’t notice how wonky until after I had cut off the excess fabric from boxing the corners which means…there’s pretty much no fixing this bag.  This is how it’s going to look until I have a sewing epiphany and figure out how to make it less…special.

My second attempt came out way better:


See?  No wonky-ness.  This is the bag that I’ve been schlepping since Friday – it even went to Six Flags on Monday.  Want to see what’s in it?

Well…you’ll have to wait.  ;op

p.s.  Thank you for all the lovely birthday wishes!  This has been the best year by far between Plurk wishes, blog wishes and Ravelry wishes.  You all made my day  :o))

  1. Maybe the little bag is just for notions? Poor little thing. I do love the blue/green bag though, quite nice.

    I’m so slow a knitter that I’m still working on the second sock of my SOS. Eh.

  2. I think they’re both pretty darn cool. I’m sending a link to your blog to my Mom to see if she can make me one. :) She’s does sewing. Me? Notsomuch.

  3. Oh you big tease! I want to see what’s in that lovely bag! The second bag turned out perfectly. I do like the wonky wee bag. It may not work as a project bag, but it will as a notions or make-up bag.

    Kims last blog post..M is for

  4. Found my way over here from Cookie’s, after seeing her pretty bag. Did you use a pattern or just figure it out on your own? Might you consider a wee tutorial for those of us who deeply covet them? (Unless you’re selling them and I missed it, in which case, please point me to your store!)

    Carries last blog post..So, I have this question
