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))

  • StoryTime Sampler 3 February 2016

    I don’t know if this project will stay here, but I wanted a spot to put all of my photos for the current sampler I’m cross stitching.

    02-03-2016

    I’ve put this on ‘hibernating’ status since I’m trying to decide what to do - I kind of want to pick my favorite 6 and make a mini sampler since there are some books in the mix that aren’t my favorites
