I'm so thankful of all these fabulous testers! They dedicated their time and fabric to give great feedback so I could finetune the pattern and get it as perfect as possible. They did a great job and it's inspiring to see the bag in so many different fabrics and colours.
During the testing I made changes to the instructions and it was clear that a video tutorial would be a great addition to the pattern. I've recently uploaded the video tutorial so you can sew along with your Tsuno Tie Bag.
Karine made the size M in a lovely Liberty tawna lawn.
Nadja made a size XXS and a size L Tsuno tie bag. The size L is a perfect match for her knit project.
"I love that you included a little back story on the origins of the bag. The Excel sheet is absolutely awesome and really helpfull to get these scraps to use. I think you can highlight this even more in your instructions, that it's a great scrap buster because it really is great."
Michelle made the tie bag in a size M and she's made her bag to coordinate her nails or her nails to match the bag ;)
"I have never made a bag like this! This was fun and I know that I will be making more !"
Nique used a beautiful Dutch wax and a baby blue gingham for her Tsuno tie bag. She made both the XXS and the size M and as you can see they are fox approved!
"Super cute pattern!"
Made herself a lovely small project bag in a size XS in a very knitting appropriate fabric.
"I absolutely love, LOVE the large clear diagrams! I probably used them more that the written instructions as I'm a visual learner. I certainly will make a larger one at some point to use as a sock knitting project bag and use my smaller one the keep the yarn clean and untangled. It'll be great to wrap presents!"
Another Tsuno Tie Bag in Dutch wax, and another project bag, this bag is a size XL and as you can see it fits quite a few balls of yarn.
Mariz made the XXL and added clever hack, she made a small strap to connect the pointy handles to turn it into a permanent shoulder bag.
"I love, love it. I want to make all sizes for everything."
Made the Tsuno tie bag in sizes XXS and S, great for small snacks and as a small reusable gift wrap.
"I really like this pattern. I was always wondering how bento bags are made! It was really fun to sew."
A big thank you to all the testers!
