While wasting time on Pinterest last week, I saw a bag specifically made for knitting (or crocheting) while standing. The bag rested on your arm, holding your yarn as you worked. Great idea but the design was inelegant and had no structure. So I took the basic idea–a bag that hangs off your forearm–and made my own from my stash of Mod Corsage.The strap is long enough to accommodate your arm even if you’re wearing a few layers. And if you need even more space, all you have to do is lengthen the strap a few inches. I’ve put together a free project sheet for you so you can whip up a few of these. There are two sizes. The smaller one is perfect for a skinny scarf or socks, little embroidery projects or even a bit of EPP. I’ve left off pockets, but you could easily add some if you feel the need. The medium sized bag (the one in AMH) takes 1/3 yard each of two different prints while the small one (the one in Tula’s Eden) needs only 1/4 yard each of two prints. You can also make the small one with two Fat Quarters. Click here to access the two page pdf file. Then grab some fabric from your stash and get sewing. In no time at all you’ll have a beautiful little project bag. I’m filling mine with this gorgeous Malabrigo sock yarn in Lotus–a perfect color fit for this Mod Corsage bag.
What will you put in yours?
