She also gardens, bakes, reads and exercises. But mostly Mo Knits.

Silk Project Bag


I finished the silk project bag for our contest winner, Annie.

I thought I would share it with you.

I used a silk shirt that was starting to show a little wear, but the fabric was otherwise in good condition.

I cut two rectangles 11×14 inches. I sewed side seams wrong sides together, then right sides together to create an extra strong hidden seam. Then I did the same for the bottom.

I cut the button side of the button placket from the shirt and sewed it to the top of the bag to create a drawstring casing. I made two buttonholes through which I threaded some ribbon for the drawstring.

I hope Annie likes it.

I'm an addict. I obsessively shop for yarn and pattern books, then knit like a fiend. When I'm not knitting something out of someone else's head, I'm thinking up designs of my own. When I grow up I want to be Elizabeth Zimmermann. On the rare occasions I'm not knitting, or thinking about knitting, or shopping for knitting, I sometimes bake, cook, garden, read, and exercise. The exercise is not by choice. I only do it to manage pain from a herniated disc. Exercise for me works better than Vicodin, and I highly recommend it.
