I made knitting bags! Õmblesin kudumiskotte!


I'm so thrilled, I've made two of my dreams to come true! I found a beautiful remnant of fabric with a fairy pattern in Abakhan years ago. I have been smitten by these fairies, specially the Knitting Fairy and Sewing Fairy. Aren't they adorable? I dreamt about making a project bag but I was not sure what type to do.   
I had another dream; to make a bag with a flexible frame. Finally I managed to get the right frame from the Craft and Cotton stall when I visited the Hobbycraft show. It is a great frame as it does not snap closed but stays open. I did not have a pattern for the bag but I looked up different patterns online, like Puffy Pouch, Flex Frame Pouch and others, to get some ideas. I used some funny labels, purchased at the craft show, just to give the bags a little twist.
When I was searching project bag patterns, I came across an Open Wide Zippered Pouch Tutorial and decided to make one of these. I had just a 25 cm long zipper at hand and the bag turned out rather small. I will definitely make some bigger bags later. I used the left-overs from shortening IKEA curtains. It is a nice, heavier fabric, so I did not use any interfacing.
Finally I made some stitch markers, I'm always short of removable markers.



Olen nii elevil, tegin kaks oma kaua-aegset unistust teoks! Aastaid tagasi leidsin Abakhan'ist jupikest haldjatega kangast. Aina imetlesin neid, eriti Kudu- ja Õmblus-haldjaid. Unistasin kudumiskotist, aga ei suutnud tegumoodi valida.  
Teine unistus oli teha painduva raamiga (flexi frame) kott. Sobilik raam õnnestus hankida
Craft and Cotton müügiletilt, kui külastasin Hobbycraft showd. Raam püsib avatuna, ei klõpsa ise kinni. Koti lõiget mul polnud. Otsisin netist, eeskujuks said Puffy Pouch, Flex Frame Pouch ja muud.
Kasutasin kottidel ka vahvaid silte, mis sain samalt käsitöömessilt.
Kotilõikeid otsides leidsin ka toreda lukuga koti lõike Open Wide Zippered Pouch Tutorial. See kott avaneb laiemalt, kui muud lukuga kotid. Otsustasin ka selle teha. Kott tuli pisut väike, selline kosmeetikakoti suurus, kuna mul oli ainult 25 cm lukk kodus. Kangasteks on ülejäägid IKEA kardinate lühendamisest. Hea tugev kangas, ei kasutanudki liimiriiet. Kunagi teen sama lõikega suurema koti ka, vaja vaid lukk muretseda.




Lõpuks tegin mõned kudu-markerid ka, avatavaid oli napilt. Ja mulle lihtsalt meeldib neid aegajalt teha, kasutan hoolega.
