I’ve been on a bag making spree since I was last here. The yarn project bag that I made to keep everything tidy sparked a major obsession that my Instagram friends can attest to! I just don’t seem to be able to stop making them. I’ve adapted the design since my original version was only ever intended to be used at home, the bag now has an optional carry strap and an additional exterior pocket with a zip making it a very useful everyday bag 🙂 I’ve also christened this design the “Doris project bag”. I had a very beloved great aunt named Doris and she and I shared an unhealthy obsession with plastic bags. Given that I designed this bag to replace an exceptionally ugly plastic bag it seemed only fitting to call it Doris and it makes me smile every time I think I about it. I’d like to think that I would have been able to persuade her to use one of these bags in the place of a plastic bag 🙂

Yvonne has earmarked the bag on the left as her Christmas present. I think there would be major sulking if it didn’t show up in her Christmas stocking, it’s Lecien Flower Sugar and Pam Kitty Picnic heaven 😉
I’ve made a rather special version of this bag using some long hoarded Tula Pink fabric. I’ve decided to sell this one but rest assured it if it’s still in the Etsy store by Christmas Eve it won’t be leaving our house. There is a certain teenager with her fingers firmly crossed…

Tula Pink is just a genius designer!

Nice and roomy in there for lots of stuff, not just yarn!
