“My first finish for June” OR “A quick tutorial by Sophie”!!

Well here it is, my first June finish!!!June 2010 008 Now I know it looks like a quilt with handles, but Sophie, my very capable assistant, will take you through a short step by step tutorial on how to turn it into a bag :o)!!!

First you gather up the ties on the one side ……June 2010 011then you do the same on the other side …..June 2010 017if you can’t remember how you did the first side then go back and have another play look :o).June 2010 024 then go back to the second one for another go …..June 2010 021Once you finish playing with tying the ties …June 2010 018 Then you’ll have a great big bag!!!!!June 2010 025So now you can hop inside and check for comfort ……June 2010 028Close it up and ensure that it’s nice and roomy too :o) …June 2010 029Once you’ve established that all is well with the world, you can have a little nap :o). June 2010 030Cos turning quilts into bags is tiring ya know!!!

By Sophie (Meow-purrr) ;o).

If anyone else would like to make one of these lovely big bags for their kitty for carrying their quilts n stuff, then you’ll find the pattern in a book called “Jelly Roll Quilts” by Pam and Nicky Lintott :o).

How cute, love it, looks like it could be simple-ish and reasonably fast - I think we have that book in our Group's Library,(like I really need another project).
Sophie is too adorable.

Hey Joy-Belle! Oh, your Sophie did make me laugh!! :0) I can see she definitely has a future as a craft teacher! Tee! Hee! Hee! And some good tips along the way there ... never be scared to stop and play and at the end of the day ... take a nap! :0) Bear Hugs! KRIS

Joy, you just crack me up!! What a wonderful tutorial. I love Sophie. She looks very much like my sweet girl, Minnow, who was always into the middle of my sewing projects. Actually, she was in the middle of everything I did!! If I went shopping, I had to show her everything I bought, and she would dutifully give every little item a sniff of approval! I miss her so much! ~karen

i love it!! and your cat! But seriously, this is such a great bag/blanket - it would be perfect for all my knitting - i guess you could put a few pockets inside too for the needles. And beautiful fabric too!
