Now I promised to show you the second new design being shipped out to stores this week. Do you ever loose your sewing gadgets at the wrong time? Can't find your quarter inch foot for the sewing machine, the thimble or your paper scissors under all the stuff gathering on your sewing space?
That's when you need a few of these or in my case at least a dozen.
So what's new?
Gadget Bags, for all your stitching do-hickeys and do-dads.
Can't stop at one? Me neither, that's why there are three designs in this pattern.
Large: Big enough for knitting needles, large sewing/paper scissors or the perfect pencil case for the little (and big kids) of the house.
Medium: Great size for Pigma pens, drawing pencils and pencil sharpener which always seems to be AWOL when I need it.
Small: I use this for the rest of my do-hickeys and do-dads I can't live without. But it would also make a great little purse in your handbag for lipstick, tissues & parking fines.
The pattern will step you through how to make your own lined zipper Gadget Bag. They really are quite simple, so easy I think you might get carried away with them too.
So how did they come about? Well, let me tell you the story.
My Mum (Helsey) was commenting on my new sample 'Just Darling' and mentioned at the time the bag would be perfect for knitters. I had not given knitting a thought considering yarn and I never seem to appear in the same room.
So off I went thinking about knitters and knitting needles and by the end of the night the large Gadget Bag was complete. Of course it looked a little lonely on it's own so the rest of the collection was made the next day or so, I was hooked.......(BTW - yes, you can use these for crochet too)
So the the story doesn't end there, at that stage 'they' didn't have a name. I needed help with that.
Later that afternoon I mentioned on Twitter about (PPNP) my perplexing pattern naming problem. Within about two tweets of a second Monica came to the rescue with a return email with these words....Do-Hickeys & Do-Dads....she had me at hello, really she did.
The pattern was named, I was one happy do-hickey and Monica was one Happy Zombie.
You see inspiration is everywhere, but sometimes you just have to ask.
