It started a few days earlier, really, when TBF announced that her LYS owner was looking for a "local supplier" of project bags to sell in the shop. And, then, adding that she had taken the liberty of recommending ME!!!
Well, after going into a brief panic, I decided that I might give it (the project bag making industry) a try. That's how I turned a stack of fabric into 3 project bags this weekend...
And I'm interested in making the best bag that I can make, so I made another one this afternoon since work got canceled due to the weather predictions. (Gotta LOVE living in the South!)
Today's Tab Bag:
Each bag took WAY longer than I expected, but it has been a learning experience. Thank you to Knittingsuek, Phoenixfire, Quietheart, and Sheeplady75 for participating in my "Market Analysis" to find out what "Bag Lady's" like. I appreciate your comments and suggestions.
I would also like to thank Craftsy.com and Kristin Link of Sew, Mama, Sew (www.sewmamasew.com) for the informative Bag-Making Basics: Drawstring Bag & Bucket Bag class. It helped me look at the process in a different light. Kristen's technique for the drawstring casing gave my bags a more professional look. (See the Medium, lined bag above.)
It was a productive day and with some relaxation...
I ended the day by casting on THREE new knitting projects!!!
Until next time...
