Small knitting project bag.

I made this little bag from this tutorial. It was quick and easy, and I love the fact that it's completely reversible.

There's Lucy on the inside. :)

But I have a few issues with it. I didn't have any soft interfacing on hand...only the sort-of stiff kind I use in wallets and such. The interfacing (and the gusseted bottom) make the bag sturdy enough to stand on its own, which I like. But it also affects the drawstring. It's so stiff around the top that it doesn't draw tight properly, a fact made worse by the thin little trim stuff I used as the string.

I'd like to try it again with softer interfacing and a stronger drawstring. But it also bugs me that it doesn't really have a handle (unless you carry it by the drawstring).

I really want to sew a big, sturdy, square-bottomed project bag that's large enough for bigger knitting projects, too. I want a divider in the bag and lots of pockets. I'm looking for the right pattern or tutorial, but I'm thinking I might just have to make one up myself. Any pattern suggestions? :)

Until next time,
