My sewing machine has been collecting dust lately.
So when I saw this cute tutorial by Sewspire, I decided to make a quick project.
I went into my stash, found some cute fabric and started making this sock knitting bag.
Then all heck hit the fan.
My sewing machine made a weird sound and when I went to investigate parts literally fell out of the machine.
So I threaded my Kenmore 12 Stitch and started sewing with that.
Well, once I started sewing the layers together, two needles broke (one rather dramatically and spectacularly).
Ok, clearly this machine could not handle the thicker fabric.
So, I went back to my Brother machine (free from a friend) and got online to find the manual.
I got all the pieces back together and finished sewing.
Sadly, with all my frustration I rushed and my top stitching did not look good.
So I sewed over it with a zigzag which helped.
Then, my chopsticks broke.
A little glue and the handles were back on track.
Although the process was not enjoyable, the bag turned out cute and it really is a simple pattern.
I should have done more depth in my corners though, it’s a little tight for a full skein of sock yarn.
However, if you change the chop sticks from same side to opposite sides, it gives it a little more room.
Here is my frustrating sock bag:
This is a very cute bag and I think I’ll make a larger one and use old Boye knitting needles as the handles.
Have a good week!
