Farewell, tired totes groaning with tangled WIPs, there’s a new knitting project bag in town and it’s made by the lovely Ami Lowden. This project was created by Ami for Mollie Makes magazine – for more easy-make craft projects and creative inspiration, subscribe to Mollie or click here to find out more.
Tip for making your knitting project bags – pins will leave holes on the washable paper, so use fabric clips instead. Use a pressing cloth when pressing any seams, and when using metallic thread make sure you switch to a metallic thread needle. Oh, and don’t use metallic thread in your sewing machine’s bobbin.
