It was 109°F on our back porch as a high today. They expect the temperature to be 112° tomorrow. But, our humidity is only 9%...it's a dry heat!!! Will be staying inside knitting under the air conditioning vents!!!

I live in Phoenix and it's supposed to 121 degrees on Tuesday, the first day of summer! We are going to have a very hot summer!

Went to Walmart and got some fat quarters, made 4 yesterday. Thanks for sharing.


I used iron on fleece in order to get them to stand by themselves. I am using them as project bags so I really want them to have enough body to hold their shape. I find them easier to use if they can stand by themselves.

OMG, they're beautiful. I also knit and sew (as well as crochet). I'm an "I Love Lucy" fan like your sister. Where did you get that fabric? I love it.


I don't think the fabrics I used are in print any longer but you can get lucy fabric at: http://www.ladybuttonfabrics.com/cgi-bin/fabricshop/gallery.cgi

Did you use a pattern for your drawstring bags, and if so can you please tell me where to get it. I love making bags and these would make wonderful gifts. Thank you


I listed and added the links to the two patterns I used for these bags earlier in this thread. They do make good gifts. The choice of fabrics and the size makes the gift that much more personal.

How beautiful. I just got a new granddaughter 2 weeks ago. I better start knitting so she can have some cute things to wear when it gets cold!

I have a huge fabric stash. Was a quilter before my stroke, but can not longer quilt due to residual damage from the stroke. But I can still crochet, knit and sew with a few adaptions, so I'm truly blessed! Since you're a Beatles fan, have you made one in Beatle fabric? That would be a hoot!

Funny you should say that. I am cutting out one with Beatles Fabric now.

I'd love to be able to sew and to find one of those materials!! Do you make and sell them? Send me a PM.


No I don't sell them. I just make them for myself and a few friends.

I got the "I Love Lucy" fabric years ago because my sister wanted me to make her an apron with it. What was left over from that apron is what I used to make this bag. I ordered the fabric at Fabric.com but when I checked today they have none. I think this fabric is out of print as it were.

Love your bags. You may be the next Vera Bradley. You may start a new empire.


Thank you. Your comment made me smile. My sister tells me things like that everytime I make her something. She doesn't sew or knit or anything creative.

I love all of them. Where did you find all the knitting themed fabric? I want some to add to my fabric stash.


Fabric.com for the knitting themed fabric. Also Etsy had some the last time I looked.

I got my Lucy Fabric on Fabric.com. That was a few years ago though.

I've got the bag pattern and love it. Previously made a few different sizes, but I'm thinking these would be great gifts for my knitting and crocheting friends for Christmas... Thanks for sharing your bags. You inspired me to start sewing them again. Had forgotten about the pattern. LOVE YOURS-so cute!


These would make excellent gifts for your friends that knit or crochet. We always have something on our needles and a project bag for each project and the pattern would be fantastic. The thing that inspired me to make them was having several knitting projects going at the same time and the fact that these bags cost upwards of $30 on line! I just used fabric from my stash and a weekend to complete.

Have fun making yours. Selecting the fabrics for the bags is fun too!
