Knitted Sewing Accessories, Something has to make sewing up fun!

I know most of us knitters are less than enthusiastic when it comes to sewing,  but sadly most knits require a little sewing.  I was thrilled when Simply Knitting asked me to design some pretty sewing accessories for knitters.  I was really really really pleased when my copy of the magazine arrived.  My designs had become a self-contained pattern leaflet to accompany the cute free gift,  a tape measure in a tin.

I used some left over sock yarn for this set,  it gave me some interesting colour whilst keeping it simple.

Staying with the keeping organised theme,  I have also designed some hanging baskets.  These are also featured in issue 117 Simply Knitting.  The baskets each take one ball of Rowan All Seasons Chunky.
