Tut, tut, child!

Mum is a Busy Sewer

Watching podcasts has inspired me to sew project bags again.

I’ve always enjoyed sewing project bags for my many knitting projects but now, even more so.IMG_5411 I think it is because there are many lovely fabrics out there and, although I no longer make garments for myself (never say never), I long to make something with these fabrics.  A project bag for my knitting makes perfect sense to me.

As I play with fabric I will make a few for others and put them in the Socks-for-Mum long neglected Etsy shop.

Long ago I made and sold quilted needle keepers.  This was several years back so re-opening the shop will have a learning curve.  And, there will not be mass production but just a few lovelies now and again.

As soon as some sweet little foxes arrive these project bags will be put in the shop.  The foxes will be made into progress keepers and will be attached to the zipper pulls with a lobster clasp.

Fancy a Christmas Sock KAL?

In my last podcast I mentioned the Fred and George socks by Rachel Coopey that I will be knitting as my 2017 Christmas socks.  It would make it all the more enjoyable to have some of you joining along with me in a knit along.  I will chat more about it on the next Socks-for-Mum podcast.

Meanwhile, I’ve been sewing project bags this afternoon to house my Christmas knitting projects.  I absolutely adore this Moda Christmas fabric!  Don’t you think it makes it more fun to put your knitting in a festive bag?  I have little candy canes ordered to make into progress keepers which will be attached to the zip pull.

I will be offering a similar project back as a prize to one randomly drawn finished pair of Christmas socks ….. more info coming soon……
