My new knit-on-the-go pouch! - Update pg 4
I was on a mission to find the perfect little drawstring pouch bag for me to carry a small knitting project in. I couldn't find anything that met my needs. Some were cute, but I didn't like the color, others were too big or too small, or just not right.

So I made one.

I found this embroidered taffeta at Joanns and fell in love with it. Ugh.. I just luv luv luv it!! It has two pockets inside, a loop to attach it to my purse or belt loop, and a yarn-keeper loop to guide my yarn as I knit. It's modeled after a Go-Knit Pouch, but cuter.

I also bought fabric for a second in a black & silver brocade with a pale pink lining.

I just winged it. I had been looking at the Go-Knit Pouch and some other pouches online when I decided I'd just make one. So I just fashioned it after those. It was pretty easy, but next time I'll know to sew the button holes for the cording holes BEFORE I sew the two pieces together. I had to do them by hand! LOL

This is absolutely beautiful! I have been wanting something like this only a little bigger to protect my knitting when it is in my work bag and I love the design of this. I have some really beautiful brocade that I also got at JoAnn's that I think will work. Maybe after holiday knitting is done... Thanks for posting this, fabulous job!

FYI, if you want to make one...

The bottom circle is 6 1/4" diameter (used a salad bowl lol), and the side is approximately a 11.5" x 19.75" rectangle. I wasn't dead on accurate or anything either. I cut the pieces the same size for both the inside and outside, but for the outside piece I sewed a 1/4" seam and the inside piece I sewed about a 3/8" seam to allow it to fit neatly inside the other. But most of it was guess-work and eyeballing and it turned out great. So have fun and go to town.
