Sock Bag

Once you find a good thing you may as well stick with it. I have done this top a few times now and I know the pattern so it was done in less than an hour last night.
Love this Little Red Riding Hood fabric.
A new sock bag - I have once again run out of bags to put my works in progress and things are falling out of the last one I made. So I made one with a zip. Just big enough for 6 inch needles and a ball of wool.

The top looks great. I have some of that fabric, but haven't decided what to make with it yet.

The sock bag is inspired! Especially the wrist strap.

Doesn't Eva look gorgeous in the Hat in the previous post and she will look gorgeous in all these new clothes. The little bag is so cute. You go to so much trouble for a little bag. Gorgeous.

Wow! I get busy for a week or so and you are busy being productive. You have had so many finishes! I am in awe. I love Eva's hat and clothing. And the other clothes. And the socks. And the bag. And the new banner. And the softies. You are a machine! (Okay, two machines. A knitting machine and a sewing machine) Beautiful work - all of it.

Ooooh! that is the cutest little dress. Some little girl will be very very lucky. I love the sock back - what an awesome idea. I am late in reading my favorite blogs because I have had a horrible week last week - so I am just catching up. That little hat in the post below is so cute too and I love the little model sporting it.

Ooh such a zipper bag! I need a bag for my needlework too, but I'm to lazy to get started on a bag. This one looks gorgeous, the dress too! lovely fabrics!
