Amy Butler Charm Pack bag

We ordered in some lovely charm packs by Amy Butler recently but they are never quite as inspiring in their packaging as they are when made up into something. So after laying out the squares I decided they would make a lovely patchwork bag for my knitting.

First I “strip-pieced” the squares together into rows,

Then I used the stitch and flip method to join the rows and add wadding at the same time – a real time saver for a little project like this.

I used a pale fabric to create a lining as I thought this would make it easier to see what was lurking in the bottom of the bag.

I attached two handles and dashed out into the spring sunshine to get a lovely photograph!

Finally I filled my new bag with balls of scrummy yarn!
