A Knitting Bag

A couple of years ago, I had Judy Coates Perez stay with me. She was the guest speaker at Rose City Quilters Tote & Gloat and also took a class afterwards. I made this fabric.
Later on I found a 5-day quilt challenge in a Quilting Arts magazine and used the fabric to do the challenge - then I got stuck! (well, I couldn't figure out how to finish it off).
Over the weekend I set up the overlocker and overlocked the edges (about 4 times), then stitched it into a tube, sewed up the bottom end and finished it off with sewing the bottom points so that it sits really nice (like a square bottom tote bag - see here for easy instructions).
Viola! here is my new knitting bag!

This looks very very cool...perhaps I should dig out my piece! No wait - I have a tonne of other things to do first ;-)

Very fun!

I couldn't read the blurred letters to leave a comment so I clicked on the audio, OMG, lol, it's like 3 voices overlapping in a crazy way so its completely unintelligible. Totally bizarre.

I've never tried the audio! Aren't the letters getting too much harder to read?!
