Steph made a couple of small bags this week to stash her knitting projects, using the Town and Field bag patterns from Grainline Studio with a few cuts of our lightweight Upcycled Cotton fabrics. With these fabrics at 50% off until Sunday, it's the perfect time for spring clean storage projects like these bags. Read on for photos and details!

Town and Field Bags by Grainline Studio made in Lightweight Upcycled Cotton

The Town bag is a great everyday/do-it-all project bag, no matter what your project may be! For her Town Bag, Steph used 1m of Upcycled Fine Striped Chambray – Ecru/Blue, with matching natural thread and 2.5m of Organic Cotton Cord. She didn’t have webbing to use for the straps, so used a length of the 11oz Upcycled Denim – Natural which she had left over from her May Jeans. She also opted to do the cross stitching on the straps as she didn’t have any grommets. Steph said that this pattern was well drafted and instructions easy to follow, featuring a clever construction method with pockets on both the outside and inside. She'll be using this bag for knitting projects, right now it's holding a jersey she's working on!

The Field Bag is also ideal for organising knitting, sewing, embroidery, or other works-in-progress. For her Field Bag, Steph used 1m of Upcycled Wide Striped Chambray – Blue/Ecru and 1.5m of Organic Cotton Cord! Steph says this one will be perfect for her smaller knitting projects, inside it now is some colourful mittens she's working on!

Overall, Steph was really happy with how both bags turned out, the construction methods allow for a professional finished look and the upcycled cottons are not too stiff but crisp enough to stand up on their own.
