I started with Sew? I Knit back when it was a bunch of knitters making a skirt. I hadn't sewn anything (apart from quilting) in a long time, and the support of my fellow adventuresome knitters helped me make a skirt, a handbag, a top... In fact, I realized that since I was sewing something every month I could sew a whole wardrobe, and I moved on from this to Sewing With a Plan. If you'd like to join the SWAPalong 2007, you can go here to do so.
We haven't had a challenge here in a while, but I will always be grateful to the hostesses for getting me on the right track with my sewing. Thanks!

Secret Dragon Bag

Alright, this was a bag I made a week ago as a surprise for a past swap. I know she's not on this list so I can share the bag pictures. It's been hard to not blog this bag, maybe this will bring relief esspecially since it won't be in the mail until tomorrow!

The dragon bag will be used to cart around small knitting projects like socks. For me a useful knitting bag should be big enough to carry a bottle of water, a knitting pattern, and notions.

The bag handles are celtic knot strips which look remarkably like a cable pattern. Side pockets for cell phone and seperates.

Dragon and quilting detail.

Sock Knitting Bag

Here's a sock knitting bag I made for my pal in the Hogwarts Sock Swap. There's a wonderful online tutorial for this zippered bag.
