WIP Wednesday - Knitting and Sewing

Happy WIP Wednesday everyone! How's your week so far?

 
I have been knitting, trying to finish my first YoP project little knitted gift bag. I decided to change colors in between which required a bit of improvising since I forgot how to do that, but I think it went okay. I only need to make the drawstring and maybe put some embellishments on the baggy. And I started a second one!

 
This time I'm starting with the other color, and I've knitted 10rows on top instead of 12rows before the ribbing. I'm now at the eyelet/yarnover round and I'll be watching some more youtube video's about it, because I think I did something wrong there on the first baggy. (I'm not sure how to close the eyelet holes properly)
 
Ps. when I got on Ravelry just now, I saw this Pyramid Pouch and thought it was so cute!
 
 
I also had my first sewing class today! It was so much fun, I can't wait 'till next week! I felt I learned a lot and I'm so free to do and make whatever I want! For my first project, I decided to make a blouse/tunic inspired by one of my favourite tops. Here's my progress so far:
 
 
I've already copied the pattern, and sewn out the sleeves, back and front. The only thing missing is the collar. I'm really excited! Also, I'm a bit apprehensive as I kind of feel a new stash addiction coming on.. This time of fabrics instead of yarn.. .. Eh, we'll cross that bridge when we come to it!
 
'Till soon macaroon!

  1. Oi, you're so cute. I like those two shades of pink together. That is such a cute pouch. I'm jealous you're taking sewing classes.

  2. Looking forward to seeing your progress with the top - and I speak from experience when I say that fabric addiction is every bit as bad as yarn addiction. My fabric stash is just as huge as my yarn and fiber stash... ;) Oh, and I like the look of the gift bag - very cute!
