I needed some smaller bags for holding dpn's and smaller projects, but really wanted matching bags in several different sizes- so made some. I actually finished these over a month ago, and they have been holding up quite well! I based them off this boxy bag tutorial.
I used vintage zippers from my collection and upholstery weight fabric so dpns and tapestry needles can't poke through easily.
What the bags look like before sewing and cutting the corners...I have a bag like this for holding dpns in another fabric that I have been using for years- advantage of one like this being that it is flat so it stacks well with my Addi Clicks in the drawer.
I added handles for easier carrying- though next time I will sew the handle on the other side so when the zipper is closed the handle will be at the top.
In one of the large bags I sewed elastic straps (with cloth backing to help keep things in place). They are sized so I can slip dpns with a sock in and not lose stitches. The bag is big enough to hold the sock yarn, sock in progress, and a finished sock.
Fitting two shawls and a pair of socks in progress in the larger bag...
A flat pouch to use up the last bit of the fabric and to hold some smaller notions.
