Something New and Cute Too!

Now I will admit, that I am not great on my sewing machine. I have never even taking a sewing class. But, I am good at researching and following directions.

I have been seeing these little sewed box bags knitter use for small project and I wanted one too! So, I made it my mission to find a pattern to make me one! I thought to myself, it can't be that hard to make! Well, I found several tutorials online and the one I found here seemed right for me.

It only took me about 2.5 hours to sew and I think it looks great! Now, it does have flaws and they are bothering me. But this was my first attempt and I will do better next time.

My husband, as usual, just looked at me when I told him I was making a bag for small knitting projects. But as the bag started to form, he said, "Well, go ahead Martha Stewart! It looks good!"

And you know what. . . It does! Yes, that's right, I am tooting my own horn! I love it and I am already planning to make more!

You should toot your own horn! It looks beautiful!! I have been wanting to make one of these since I first started seeing them popping up, I think you gave me the motivation to make one.

Your little box-bag is adorable. Nicely done!

Can you explain how you added the handle. I love that idea, but I just can't seem to figure out how to do it.
