MADE: Stowe Bag

Posted on November 25, 2015 by Michelle Lancet | 0 comments

Once upon a time when I had wee ones and knitting won the contest for Craft That Feeds My Soul I remember seeing the Fringe Supply Company's project bags referenced on popular knitting blogs. These bags always sold out instantly, or what seemed like instantly to me because, listen people, I did not have a smartphone when my first kid arrived. Instagram wasn't a thing. I had to walk barefoot uphill to the computer. Both ways.

I kid, but these bags were very popular and I never managed to get one before they stopped selling them. Fast forward and here we are during a time in which sewing is the craft that's winning most of my creative time. I still wanted one of those bags. So, when Spool received notice of this pattern partnership between Grainline Studio and Fringe Supply Co., we knew it was a perfect match and we didn't hesitate for one second to carry the Stowe bag pattern. Good things come to those who wait!

This bag pattern features two sizes and both versions have lots of great pockets for all of your crafty wares. It's absolutely perfect for stashing your latest knitting project, toting your sewing tools to and from a class or your weekly maker gathering. 

Generally, I'm not one to go the cutesy route when it comes to prints, but I don't know, the small creatures and the small bag size let me get away with it in a great way, don't you think? These canvas prints are from The Tinies Collection and I'm smitten with them! The possibilities are endless though with fabric and binding choices. I'm already planning out the large size bag. 

The pattern is listed as one that an advanced beginner can tackle and the "advanced" part is the application of the bias binding on a curve, but go slow and you'll be fine! Cute and useful bags await!
