Right before Christmas I stitched up a couple of box bags for a couple of good friends. Box bags are great for sock knitting and small projects – so I hear, because I haven’t kept one for myself yet!
I am not a great seamstress, so if I can do it, anyone can. I was particularly proud of these 2 bags I made (I used an iron and a ruler – go figure). This is my favourite box bag tutorial, because I do subscribe to the “a picture is worth a thousand words” kind of tutorial. For the above bag, I used some fusible interfacing on both the lining and outside fabric, since that is what I had on hand.
Feel like surfing some great tutorials for a few hours? The Long Thread has posted their Top 100 Tutorials of 2010. Amazing stuff! I do intend to make another box bag, perhaps this weekend…and I am keeping it this time
”What’s that?” the children ask. “It’s an iron”, I reply.
Pretty much solely for pressing sewing and knitting projects and nothing else – this iron is so old – it is so heavy, and yet still works like a charm.
See what I made? It’s for spring. A lovely design from Grand Revival. http://www.grandrevivaldesign.com/index.html
