created a quick weight bag, simple square & sewed a handle on top to make it portable. used the Simplicity pattern, just eliminated the straps. note the awesome ruler pocket!

quick & raw: fishing weight bags

hello! i’ve been making some simple, cheap & easy bags to separate my husbands obsessive collection of fishing weights.????

i used a simple closure system, the japanese knot procedure: make one loop & slip it into another smaller loop: ??????????????

pull strap thru loop

i boxed the corners via the cut method:

wrist wallet obsession

so mom asked me to make her a little wallet for her wrist for when she walks. one to tuck tissues & cough drops into. i designed this one & had to frakenstein it, (loved the various fabric choices & didnt want to lose them.)…

one secret pocket, plus the zip PLUS the stretchy front one. velcro on the edges.

the front is knit scraps, hopefully it'll stretch for extra room for the tissues

zipper pocket on the front for cough drops and house key. next one i think i'll make clear.

3rd pocket made from weird frankensteining work i did. added interfacing to all fabric, didnt seem to make it too unwieldy.

yes, the work is crappy. but it sparked ideas on how to improve, and i think thats my next new obsession. i’d like one for myself for the grocery store list, & make a better one for grandma.

i’m also working on the car storage bag; knitting the outside & lining the inside with fabric.

some sewing

i’ve been obsessed with sewing lately, specifically bags. been making a few noodlehead zipper bags which came out wonderful!

and then made some fishing stuff. a cool ass rod bag for nate, with one exposed zipper pocket on the outside; large 3d pocket for his tackle. another smaller pocket with red zip for whatever. a cool strap so he can carry across his chest. I love it.

also stayed up late one night making a fishing bag, which ended up being too small for use, but eh, i’ll re-use.Image
