Winter is the season for knitting. Right? What is better than sitting by a cozy fire with a great movie and working on a knitted project of choice? The problem with knitting for new knitters is actually finishing a project. A while back I taught my best friend to knit. Thing is as she is a busy New Yorker who rarely has time to dedicate to her new hobby. So a year after what was supposed to be a scarf just turned out to be this 18 inch strip. The other day while she was here for a visit I decided to give the strip a new unexpected life.
Here is the knitted strip.
After deciding on the size of the squares needed for our pouch I sewed a zig zag strip and cut below it. This way your stitches won’t unravel.
Then I sewed in a zipper and my lining pieces just like I would for a normal pouch.
After sewing up the sides and turning it inside out we ended up with the cutest softest pouch this side of the Hudson. We finished it up with a little felt patch. Tweet!
