You can always count on this designer, Sew Can She, to come up with a novel and useful sewing project. Her high quality sewing patterns and tutorials give you plenty of instruction and create great projects – like this handy yarn project bag.
The Sew A Yarn Project Bag is perfect for carrying balls of yarn and your knitting or crochet projects too! This half-barrel shaped bag has an easy to install eyelet (or grommet) on top through which you can draw out the yarn.
With your yarn ‘in the bag,’ it will stay clean even when the bag is on the floor – perfect for using at home and in the car, at appointments, or at a friend’s house!
The designer used piping on the round edges of the bag because piping is her secret way to hide uneven stitching, and it always adds a professional touch.
The strap is attached at the back of the bag to make it easy to carry – the flat side is against your body so it won’t flop around.
And as you can see, this Yarn Project Bag holds plenty of yarn. The approximate size is 10″’ tall and 11″’ wide. No pockets were added but it would be very easy to do so.
What you will need to make a Sew A Yarn Project Bag:-
- 1/2 yard of fabric for the bag exterior,
- 1/2 yard of fabric for the bag lining,
- 1/2 yard foam stabilizer (such as ByAnnie Soft and Stable),
- 40’’ of piping (such as Wrights Maxi Piping),
- One size 4.5 YKK handbag zipper, 20’’ long (one or two pulls, as desired),
- One large or extra-large eyelet (the designer prefers Dritz eyelets and find them fairly easy to install),
- Basic sewing supplies,
- A sewing machine.
More fabric and zippers may be required if you decide to add pockets.
