Kay Stephenson is a freelance writer and fiber artist living in Atlanta, Ga with her husband, Mark, and her dog, Lady. Working in several fiber related craft areas, she combines quilting, crochet, and wet felting techniques to create unique works of art.
Kay blogs about her craft at http://www.stitchingtimes.blogspot.com. She says, "I learned to crochet, knit and sew at my mother's knee. She could do it all from sewing to tatting, crochet, knitting, embroidery. I learned to knit when I was about 6 or 7 and just never stopped learning new crafts and techniques."
Are you a multi-faceted crafter? Then this pattern is for you. Crochet the bag components then wet-felt them to make a dense wool fabric. Finally sew the components into this roomy project bag - a perfect place to assemble all of the things you need for your next project. Here is a bag you can be happy to carry with you wherever your project takes you. With one large outside pocket and another large one inside, there is plenty of room for stitch markers, gauge, crochet hooks and all the other odds and ends we collect.
I've you're like me, you will want to make several to organize all of you projects. Face it. We all have six projects going at once. With this pattern you can have as many as you like, and show off you crochet, wet felting and sewing skills.
