Did you say Sewing?


In an effort to not forget my other crafty things I got my sewing machine out the other night and put together these two 'Sock Bags'. Isn't the fabric too perfect? One is for me and the other well that is a surprise for someone special. I was looking for the perfect fabric and although socks would have been better, shoes were the next best thing....

Specks:
  • They are my own design. I used a plastic coated fabric for the inside to prevent needles from poking through (this happened with the last bag) and a nylon handle instead of a drawstring - this way there will be no twisting around the wrist as I knit and walk (yes it can be done, as long as you look up every once and awhile).
  • Cotton fabric double ply with 2 layers in the inside as well as the plastic coated lining. Just big enough for a sock project.
Happy Crafting! And yes I am still reading....

Hi Devon,
Sorry I forgot to wish you a happy anniversary last week--time really flies. It doesn't seem like six years ago that you guys got married (although, some days it seems like Michael and I have been together for around 40 years rather than 7)! I like your sock bags--you're getting so talented with all of your crafts!
