Knitting Bag

I made this little knitting bag for Y's birthday (along with the tool belt).  He picked the colors without knowing what I was making and I love how it turned out!

I used this tutorial.  There's a little pocket inside for accessories.  I think I'll put one of my stitch counters in the pocket for him.  I'll give it to him with his needles and yarn inside.

Y's Birthday

For Y's birthday, I made him a tool belt using this pattern.  I made it one inch longer and with canvas rather than thin fabric, since it will be for real tools rather than plastic ones.  It doesn't have to be so perfectly useful, I know he'll love wearing it either way - the kids in Walker's books are wearing their toolbelts in all the photos and I don't see any tools sticking out :)
