We won't tell.   :)
I might look as though I'm talking to you, but inside my head I'm sewing.

Here is my bag, a knitting bag made for my sister’s birthday. I used this pattern
with navy, green and white fabric. I lined it with some white cotton machine embroidered with a knitting design I downloaded.  [attachmentid=2 msg=143352]

I’m not sure I would recommend this pattern, in some ways I wish I’d used stronger wadding/ interfacing. But on the other hand turning the bag from inside out to finish was a nightmare due to the narrow straps which are part of the bag itself. That would have been impossible I think with heavier wadding. Still my sister loves it so that’s the main thing!

Lovely @Fabric Lover , I really like your choice of fabrics and it looks very practical as a knitting bag. Lots of pockets for all the bits and pieces. :D

There are so many gorgeously creative bags on this thread. Mine are rather plain in comparison but I'm pleased I made them. :D I've enjoyed the sewalong.

They look beautifully made @Kenora. I like the square quilting : a nice contrast with the floral fabric and not plain in the least!

Everyone’s  bags look great, I really wanted to take part but unfortunately I have had a really difficult month, along with working away from home for a week and somehow October ran away from m.  still will make a bag but won’t make October

I'm back and just in time to admire @Lilian 's, @Fabric Lover 's and @Kenora 's bag creations. Such impressive talent! I'd be dead happy if I'd made any of the bags on this thread  :).

Variation on the Bagathon theme- made a very quick ( i.e. not perfect )  carry cot this afternoon for my little granddaughter to carry her doll in. She is only 16 months old : a baby herself, but she adores playing with her baby! It is quite long, so had to hand sew the corners in to help it keep its shape.
