What's Knot To Love?

Get a load of this...
my first attempt at a Japanese Knot Bag. A friend sent me the link to this project's tutorial today while at work and I couldn't wait to get home and try it out.
I love this project! It's quick and easy and makes a great gift. From only two fat quarters (sewing speak for about two quarters of a yard of fabric, pre-cut) you can create stunning little bags.
I recently purchased a number of FQs in coordinating fabrics, just perfect for this project.
Knot bad, huh? Oh, if you're interested in making your on Japanese Knot bags click here for the tutorial.

Looks good lady! I'm about to start mine in a few hours. I have to clean the sewing room first, looks like a hurricane hit it!

Thanks for stopping by my blog. I came here hoping to see photos of your 15-91 (and maybe the 201) but I think I spy another vintage treasure behind the awesome knot bag! 401 Slant-0-Matic? I can't tell. In any case, I'm very jealous of your collection...considering you're a knitter and all! :)

I'm a bit phobic about sewing curves so I thought I'd try my knot bag without the circle base (http://www.marthastewart.com/article/reversible-purse).

Btw, your content is great, don't get me wrong, but some of your punny titles are flippin' hysterical!
