knit pirates bags

I saw this awesome fabric online called Knitmare on Elm Street from Michael Miller. It has skull and crossbones prints with knitting needles and scissors and also a whole print with horrible knitting nightmares like the dog chewing up your knitting or the quick and easy knitting project that goes on so long you think it's going to kill you! I bought some right away to make fun little knitting bags for my knitbuddies for Christmas. I used Amy Karol's simple tote pattern from Bend-the-Rules Sewing and whipped up a half-dozen of them in a few days. The lining fabric was also a great find - it's sock monkey texture fabric that looks like knitted socks. Too cool!
