As I often do when Hubby is out of town, I like to try new things…restaurants, projects, hiking, etc. But this time I did something that I haven’t done in a long time…sewing. Surfing Pinterest I came across tutorial for a cute box bag. The tutorial was from So Chick! Handbags (find it here). So after much internal debate, do I use fabric I have or purchase new, I ran out to my local quilt store, County Sewing Center. I picked up some really cute fabric for a couple of different projects.
The box bag turned out so cute. I did alter the tabs on the sides to be a bit bigger since I have trouble grasping things with my thumb on right hand since it was injured in a motorcycle accident about 5 years ago. I just need a bit more to hold on to since my grip isn’t what it once was.
The finished box is big enough to hold my current sock project along with plenty of room for the necessities like a measuring tape, scissors, a couple of hooks, stitch markers, etc. I plan to make a few more of these for various people as gifts. I’m sure that my mom would love one since she always has multiple projects going at once.
