Curls has come up with the perfect solution as to how to store hats and gloves by her scarves so they are easily accessible when she’s ready to walk outside. In her words, “Here’s a tip. Use a draw string bag to hold your hats and gloves.” By hanging a “created-by-you” bag on a hook by the scarves, you won’t have that early morning scramble to find a hat and gloves before going outside to brave the cold.

Long time followers might recognize the bag as one that I made and posted the tutorial for in our Oct 23, 2012 It’s In The Bag blog. What I’ve changed about the instructions will be featured in another Tutorial Thursday.

One of our very favorite bloggers is caityrosey of All She Wants To Do Is Knit. Such a fun, humorous, inspiring, knitting blog. As a pay-it-forward I received a wonderful tea cozy from her and I sent one of my bird-patterned, project bags to her. I picked the bird pattern since she had posted about the sale on the Peterson Bird app, which I’d been wanting. Can you imagine my surprise and absolute delight when she posted this picture on her July 2013, Knitting at Meetings blog? A truly knit-worthy, sewing-worthy person. I urge you to check out her blog.

Fancy Spin On Toms

~Tom’s shoes are the best! Not only do they donate a pair of shoes to a needy child, each pair comes with a nifty, cotton, drawstring bag, Now I know that you are supposed to store your shoes in the bag, but what?? Not happening at my house, shoes need to air out and breathe. What to do with the bag? Dye it and iron on some scrap fabric! Hurrah! Loving my new, repurposed knitting project bag. The bag in the background is now in a vat of green dye. If you look closely, you can see that I like the mottled-dye look
