A Fine Idea From Sue

Sue B. Had a great idea for another felted project for me. A knitting bag. I did a little research on how large the typical "knitting" bag is and decided to make one. Sue has good ideas ! I already has started this particular piece and it was the perfect size- about 16 inches (40.64 cm) long and 8 inches (20.32 cm) wide. Large enough for needles, a couple of balls of yarn and some notions and a pattern. This is just the beginning, but I had SUCH a good time quilting the piece ! I used one of my hand-dyed pieces for the lining and am in the process of getting the zipper in. Stand by for a post of the finished project !

The first two photos are the front and the bottom two are of the lining side - shows the quilting.
