It occurred to me yesterday that I had some leftover pink batiks from my seasonal wallhanging from last fall's Loopy Academy, and that I could probably use them for a pink project bag. 2-1/2 hours later, I had this:
I basically sat down and started playing with the squares leftover from the blossoms until I had a reasonably sized bag shape, and then added a pale turquoise stripe and a solid piece for the base. It's lined with more scraps and I found a sparkly, gray twill ribbon for the drawstrings. Now I have a pink project bag that is big enough for a sweater. While I was in the sewing room, which desperately needs a good reorganization and straightening, I saw that I have pink yarn in my stash for at least four more sweaters. This bag was clearly essential to my pink knitting!
This may be the summer of pink sweaters! Brace yourself!
