I was getting tired of crumpled up patterns in my knitting bag.....so I thought a pattern holder would be a great idea. Most of my patterns are printed on standard paper....so this little bag was supposed to hold a folded pattern, plus a pencil, some stitch markers, etc. Great idea, right? Too bad it came out a little toooooo small to fit the pattern. Those seam allowances are not a 1/4 inch. Maybe more like 5/16 if one factors in the fabric fold. Shoot. Back to the drawing board.
