a knitting notions pouch

This is my little weekend sewing project,
which was so long
overdue! 
You would think that with the numerous
knitting projects I have going on, simultaneously,
I would be a bit more organized.
Instead, all my little knitting notions and doodads
have been scattered about--in a basket here, a knitting bag there,
or in a bowl on a book shelf...
When I need something, it's never where it should be
and a desperate search ensues :)
But no more,
I have sewn up a simple little pouch
using a leftover piece of canvas grain sack
and a metal zipper--no lining, nothing fancy--but very functional.


{ Note ~ those little metal candy tins
make great holders for the little bits & bobs. }
Now, with everything contained, my trusty
pouch can move with me from project to project...the
current one being the garter yoke cardi...

  2. That's just lovely, Deb!
    It does indeed make a big difference to be able to access your notions on the spot when the need arises.
    And I love how your new case coordinates beautifully with the basket and the yarn :)

  3. Such a great little bag to hold your knitting supplies. I think I need to make one of these. I love that you didn't waste that cute little grain sack fabric leftover.

  7. That's a fine idea. I need to make one for my embroidery stuff. One pouch to haul around all the little things.
