Featured in Pink Chalk Fabrics Newsletter

It seems the Japanese Knot Bags (see previous post) I made as a Christmas gift for my sister are getting some interest. That’s great.

Christmas Gift Sewing - Japanese Knot Bag 

These were made following this tutorial by Helen Heath.

This weekend I was featured in the newsletter from Pink Chalk Fabrics. I was really happy to see this when I received it in  my mailbox. Moreover, I got a 20$ gift certificate to spend on their online fabric shop. Thanks to Kathy Mack! I will probably buy some Kona Cottons for my future projects. I got to build a stash of solid color cottons. And, they have a great selection. In fact, I got my Kona Color Card from there. It such a great tool!

The Japanese Knot bag were also pinned a few times on Pinterest. That’s the first time I notice people visiting my blog coming from Pinterest. It’s fun to see that people are starting to read my posts. It’s giving some motivation to continue writing this blog. Thanks everyone!

    Your Knot bags turned out beautiful! Did you have a problem following the directions? I am fairly new to sewing and struggled with sewing the lining and outer fabrics together at the handles. Do you have any suggestions? I think I may tweak the pattern so it is more of a curve. Otherwise I love how mine turned out! Such a cute way to give a gift…but I totally love the bag more than the gift I put inside 🙂

      Hi Nicole! Yes, I did find the handles a bit tricky. I just tried out a free pattern on allpeoplequilt.com. The bag is really similar but it doesn't have a round bottom. The explanations are clear and I found that joining the handle ends following their instructions was easier. Here is a link to the pattern: http://www.allpeoplequilt.com/projects-ideas/bags-pillows/free-bag-patterns_ss11.html. Hope this helps! I also find that those bags are a gift in themselves. My sister was really happy to receive them.
