Craft on the go

I don’t know if it happens to you but the more I sew, knit, crochet or stitch I want to do, sort of a crazy addiction.

I have noticed that when I am sat watching tv of waiting for something I want to do some sort of handcraft… sometimes is cross-stitch some other times is knitting but either way I just see it as an opportunity to do something.
I usually drag my projects from one sofa to another in a shopping bag or an old handbag, so I thought it was time to make a proper caddy for my stitching… and here it is!

Craft caddy

Do you like it?

I used Sandi Henderson’s Modern Meadow in Midnight as the main fabric and some navy blue canvas that I had in my stash. I was very tempted to use Vintage Ironwork or any other of the fabrics from the same collection, but the first fabric is so pretty and bold that I wanted to really give it central stage and use a solid fabric for the rest of the bag.

I followed the original pattern to the letter, it has 3 front pockets (can you see them??) and 3 dividers inside. As I tend to have more than one project on the go (and who doesn’t?!?!) I am thinking of making a second one, this time without the dividers and using 2 (or maybe even 3) of Riley Blake’s Daisy Cottage fabrics.

Do you have a bag for your projects? Share some pictures in our Flickr group or in facebook :)
