Irishgirlie Knits....and Sews???

My first ever real sewing project!! Wow!! I've finally made friends with my sewing machine. I've been a bit intimidated by it since Rowan gave it to me at Christmas. Then the adorable baa baa blankie...well, putting that lining on the back, well we (thanks Melissa!) did put a cute blue gingham lining on the back of it...but it took forever, probably needed to be redone, but with those cute sheep, whose really looking at the back, right? But it didn't help me love my sewing machine any more. Then, Zonda (I just love her) from Z Knits....and Sews (that's right...I borrowed her blog title for my post) sent me a fabulous swap this week that included this gorgeous Amy Butler fabric (my first ever!). Then I saw these cute bags on another favorite knitter's etsy shop, and was inspired to make friends with my sewing machine. After a few hours...ta-da!!

A perfect little knitting bag... Scarf that Rocks! loves it too! We're off to Reno for the weekend! xoxo Irishgirlieknits

Thanks for stopping by my blog. It's nice finding other SF Bay Area knitters in blogland.

Cute bag! And nice scarf, too! :) I've got a STR chevron scarf on my to-knit list now that my Monsoon's are done.

Very cute bag! One of these days, I'll learn how to sew. But for now, I'll just admire your new project bag.
