Totally unrelated to knitting.

For Christmas, I asked Santa for a sewing machine. I'm in love with my new toy. So far, I've made several small things that are almost done, and one thing that's 100% completed.

I made a skirt out of the brown flowery material, and I had a lot of leftovers, so I went back and got some muslin and made a little bag. I didn't really use a pattern, but I based the idea in my head off of this pattern. Mine isn't reversible though.

This has now been christened my new knitting bag. I debuted it last night at our knitting group and it held up pretty well. I can already tell that the sewing machine and I are going to be great friends!

Hey, that reminds me, I have a sewing machine too. But it hasn't seen the light of day for a decade or so. Hope you enjoy yours a lot!

Oh my gosh!!!! You made that bag! I love it so much!!! I need more exclamation points to express how great it is!!!

Now I'm really mad at the migraine I came down with last night. :( I can't wait to see this in person, it looks wonderful!

Seriously cute. I have no room for the sewing. But as long as you are, check out this pattern from one of my friends: http://simpleknits.blogspot.com/2007/03/expandable-tote-bag-pattern.html . It's great for yarn shopping.

A new suitor, eh? And one which bears gifts. . . Nice.

Thought about you while in cold, cold Tennessee. One day, we'll be there at the same time, and can make a yarn shop date.

Um, so when are you selling your bags on Etsy!? Because I might need one! :)
