Project Bags - SPIN, KNIT and HAT

I have enjoyed making project bags for myself and some of my crafty friends and really didn't need to make any more. I think with these last three, my count is now up to a dozen!

I saw some cute bags on the della Q website that had words and phrases silkscreened on the front and it gave me an idea. I sewed up my usual bag, an enlarged version of Jeni's Drawstring Bag, inserting a panel of paper-pieced letters. It works!

The first bag is for Dianne, who is spinning up some beautiful cotton roving that she hand dyed. (Her husband's picture of her amazing work is going to make my whole blog look bad - ;).

I made two other bags for knitting friends. Barbara knits all sorts of things, including fingerless mitts for American Girl dolls and Patty makes the most beautiful hats, one right after another - all stunners!
