I was able to find the time to sew another Knot Bag this morning.  I used the pretty pumpkin fabric I got at JoAnn’s.  Yes I know it’s Halloween fabric but I loved the brightness of the jack-o-lanerns :).  It will definitely be easy to pick that out from other bags I have knitting stored in that I am working on :P.  Altho’  these are not hard to sew, all the pinning so the pieces stay together as you sew in steps is a pain, a necessary pain but a pain never the less :P.  The finishing around the outside of the handles is fiddly too as it’s a tight area at the bottom and you are turning edges in and sewing them down as you go.  I did pre-iron the 1/4 inch seam fold to make it a little easier this time and it did help but at the very bottom it is a tight turn and you have to be careful not to sew gathered pieces as you go around the tight circle.  I used the same blue fabric for the inside as I did on the Minions bag I made earlier.  🙂  I think it turned out very nicely and I am very pleased :).  I found another Minions fabric and will try sew another one next week, time allowing.  I have a lot of knitting that I need to be working on so I can’t spend to much time sewing :P.
