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!
