How To Make My Leetle Bag


As promised, I made another Leetle Bag and documented the process for you.

Download a PDF of the pattern HERE.

[Update: the pattern calls for 3/8 yard of two fabrics; two fat quarters will work also, and you'll have less waste.]

Wow, that didn't work at all on my Mac. I'll have to try later today at work. It looks adorable though!

Leslie said...

Oh, help! I can't get the file to work, either...it's just a jumble of letters and symbold!

Ashley said...

Oh yay! I've been meaning to come and ask you how you made the bag. So great to have the pattern. For those of you having trouble - try saving it, instead of just downloading. Right click on Beth's link and choose "Save link as..." Make sure that you add .pdf at the end of the file name (at least on a pc, I don't know Mac) and it should work. At least it did for me.

Thanks again Beth!

Beth said...

Thanks, Ashley. I didn't have problems with it at home or work, so I didn't know what to do to fix it. Hopefully this will work for everyone. I will say it's a large file, so be patient if it seems to be taking a long time.

Teri said...

Still no luck. Beth, can you email it to me when you get a chance?

Chris said...

It didn't work for me. I just get a hometown addy in my browser line. No html, pdf, and blank screen.

Chris said...

Duh, I saved it in the wrong place. Thanks for the pattern!

I have been searching all over the 'nets for the past couple of days looking for this exact pattern!! You rock my world!! Thanks!!

Anne Margaret said...

Yipee! It worked! Thanks for the tips on how to save a copy of this. And THANKS for posting this. I've been wanting to try a sock bag, but didn't get around to figuring out dimensions - THANKS!!!

I made some of these this weekend and they turned out great! Thanks for the pattern instructions. My daughter said - "those don't look homemade!" :)

Hazel said...

Thanks for publishing these instructions! I've just successfully made one bag - my first project with my new sewing machine!

AR said...

Thanks for the instructions. I've been thinking about some little sock knitting bags, and this is just what I needed. :)

Hi, thanks for offering this pattern. I've been wanting to make bags about this size and shape.

As to the file not opening properly from the link - you need to edit the link so that it includes the PDF extension. As it displays right now, the document you are linking to is "http://hometown.aol.com/YarnEnvy/MyLeetleBag"

To correct this, go to wherever you edit your posts and edit the URL linked to to read: "http://hometown.aol.com/YarnEnvy/MyLeetleBag.PDF"

The document should then open correctly in Adobe Reader on everyone's computers.

Great bag! I have linked to this post.

BTW: The last comment is nearly correct. As well as updating the link, you also need to change the name of the uploaded file to end with pdf.

Thanks again!

Thank you for this! My church is doing a project for a woman's shelter, and this is exactly what I needed for the bags.
you rock! :)

I just made this to go with my daughter's renaissance dress out of super stretchy dk red velvety material and it turned out really nice! I just need to get gold ties and it will look elegant.
