She Sews: Jewel Bag Set

This is one of the “mom” gifts in the swap package I sent recently. It is a three-piece set: a zippered sock-size project bag, a little zippered notions pouch, and a DPN keeper/holder.

Pattern Info
Project Bag & Notions Pouch
Improvised by me

The bag finished at about 9″ by 12″. It is basically a large zippered pouch with two added features:

  • a handle/strap with a snap closure
  • a D-ring on the outside for progress keepers, removable stitch markers, or other key chain-type paraphernalia

The notions pouch is a simple zippered bag — the kind I love making.

DPN Keeper

This tutorial was grea! I only interfaced the outer pieces, with a medium-weight interfacing. I think it is sufficiently sturdy. And I used metal hammer-in snaps instead of plastic KAM-style snaps. I made the smaller size, for 6″ DPNs. I hope to make myself one (or two!) of these soon.

Fabric Info
100% cotton

These fabrics came in fat quarter set.
