Can't get enough of movies? Then head over to Mumsnet Films!
I would like to make a birthday present for a knitting friend of mine. I thought of sewing a bag to keep her knitting in. Traditional sort of cloth bag with plastic/wooden handles.Can anyone give me an idea of suitable dimensions, or even direct me towards a pattern? Is it better to be wide and shallow, or deep?Thanks in advance!
The one thing I would say is make sure it's long enough for a knitting needle.
Thanks, but I'm a sewer not a knitter. Can you give me an idea of how long needles are?
mine are all about 35 cm. i made my own knitting bag by copying the dimensions of a tote bag, and then outting some elastic in to the side to hold needles in place.
Ok, there's some with tutorials hereAnd this one is lovely and roomy and there is a link to the tut on it.the pleatness lovely if you're sewing skills are fairly good.amy butler bias tape bag.
And the mythical [[http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=32204.0 jordy bag
Opps jordy bag here
Also, make sure it's a fabric with a close weave so that the needles can't pole through.
Thanks for all the links ranting - definately enough patterns there to tinker around with!
