#theintrepidthreadchallenge

When Julie at The Intrepid Thread posted an invite for folks to get mystery fabric and challenged them to make something with it, I raised my hand high to volunteer!

I have long wanted to make Amanda's Knitting Bag by SometimesCrafter.

So, the time had come.  I added in some pink knetted Cotton and Steel and some black linen.

Here was the pile of lovelies I started with from Julie:

I printed my directions and got to work.  The directions for the bag were really straight forward.

Here's one side:

Here's the other:

Then I took the scraps and made a sock knitting bag to go inside the bag:

I love it.  It's already full of a couple of projects.  Thanks, Julie, for the change to play with new to me fabrics!
