Knit Pouch

Knit Pouch

Quilt Festival; Quilt Scene magazine is now on newsstands and my Knit Pouch is featured.

 

An awesome editor Vivica sent me this beautiful Heather Ross collection from Spring Quilt market and I was able to finish this knit pouch.

There’s a few things you hardly learn or keep forgetting. Knitting and Crochet are one of them.

Every winter season, I search up YouTube channels and blog step photos to get to know the basic of knitting, and by the time spring comes or while enjoying summer, I totally forget what I have learned.

So sadly, I am always a beginner in knitting world. Now you can imagine how much I admire those knitters who make all kind of soft and fluffy goods.

And I tell myself, “you can buy them with cheaper price.” How sad!

Anyway, I wanted to make a knit pouch to pamper myself and to store my beautiful yarns. (Don’t ask me why I keep buying them. A basketful of yarns are my winter decoration and beauty shot friendly.)

 

For the inside of flap, I used Lecien fabric, Memorie A Paris collection.

 

This pouch is actually my first version. I made this for my knitter and quilter friend, Kristin.

As I don’t know how to knit, I asked her to knit this cute little swatch for me(actually for her).

 

Which version do you like better? I think it would be good to have both, one for spring /summer and one for autumn/winter.

We all know that we never have enough pouches. 🙂

I drew the knitting needles and quote with my Bernina sewing machine.

With Aurifil wool thread, I was able to fake hand embroidery. Doesn’t it look like a hand embroidery to you? 🙂

 

To learn how to make this pouch, get your copy of Quilt Scene magazine at your local bookstore or online.

 

Happy sewing!

      Oh, Annie!
      You are as sweet as you name! I am glad to know that there’s someone enjoys my diary. 🙂 Your comment just made my day and will be treasured!! xoxo

  2. I love the blues of your original yarn bag! Both are adorable! I noticed the rows of embroidery right away, and thought what a great way to add a little hand quilting! So clever to do that on your machine. It really adds such a personal touch.
    When asked why I have so many crafting bags, I explain it is to hold all my yarn and stitching projects. When asked why I continue to purchase yarn and fabric…yep, to fill up those lovely bags!

      Hi, Phoebe, I giggled all alone while I was reading your words. Love your humor!! And thank you for noticing my hand quilted rows because when I did that, I thought myself pretty clever! 😉
      It feels so great talking to you. xoxo

  3. Both bags are sweet; I love how creative you are…the little knitted piece for the front. I do a bit of knitting each year and always have to go to YouTube to ‘re-learn’, too. Makes me feel better knowing that you have the same problem. 🙂

      Hi Lj,
      Haha, you are better than me because you keep “re-learn”! I gave up at some point and keep asking my friend down the street. I think I won’t be able to learn how to knit unless my trusty buddy moves agway.

  4. Of course both are needed – one for summer cotton yarns and one for soft woolly ones. Minki I’ve some very expensive so softly beautiful yarns I know I’ll never use – they are just too precious to break into. THat little knitted decoration is the perfect addition to a beautiful purse!

      Hi,Ann,
      I alway love to say “hi, Ann” 🙂
      I understand that. I have some fabrics in a plastic bag that are size of my palm. I don’t know where I can buy those prints, so I don’t think I can really use them.

  5. I love your work! Thank you for sharing. I too would like to buy some of your fabric.
