Inner Circle Finished!

 I started this bag in March of 2020. It got put aside and forgotten until my latest tidy binge. Now it is finished.

As you can see, the sun is shining today (after more snow yesterday) so I grabbed the opportunity to take pictures in the sunshine, though not outdoors since it is +4C. 

This bag has no hardware to speak of. It has a bag zipper at the top and a dress zipper on the interior pocket.

Of course, it also has the surprise kitties! It has a large slip pocket so I added a magnetic snap to the pocket to help it stay closed.

I also added my favourite add on, a key keeper, into the edge of the slip pocket. It keeps your keys in easy reach, instead of having them disappear in the bottom.

 The bag is kind of an oversized clutch, the right size for taking a few things on an outing. 

While I was tidying after I finished the bag, I decided to play with some of the scraps for the next project I have planned. Kind of "Proof of Concept".

It ended up smaller than I wanted, so I am rethinking sizes. However, I have a small friend who will think it is perfect for something. Of course, because I am an overachiever, it is fully lined and the seams are finished. Here is a picture for scale.

Tuesday night was Book Group on Zoom. I needed something to knit, so I started another pair of baby socks. The book was "Once Upon a Wardrobe" by Patti Callahan. The group enjoyed it.

Technically, the season of Easter isn't over until Pentecost, so I have another month before I have to change the tablecloth. ( We only eat at this table if we have guests.)


  1. Zoom, Facetime, Team Meetings, who would have thought many years ago this would be the way we talk to each other, meet and share so much. We are slowly edging towards the colder mornings, about 6C early today at almost 5 a.m. Love the bag and the mini one, it will be lovely, small friends love small gifts.I need to be motivated and stock up a few gifts, we had friends stay one night, in their motor home bus, luckily 4 days before I was Covid positive, and I didn't have one finished "anything" to give them.

  2. The embroidered denim bag looks the hidden kitties! Small people like things scaled to their size to keep a few treasures safe. I have done music zoom, and sewing zoom, and family Sunday night quiz zoom, but not book zoom.

  3. That little drawstring bag is SO cute!! I love that fabric!

  4. Your bag looks great and a useful size. Cute little drawstring bag too. xx
