Adorable ways to use up leftover yarn and have something useful when you're done!

The Smocked Canvas Tote from Anthropologie as seen in the May 09 Catalog

I've always wanted to try smocking. A summer bag is the perfect excuse to try it out.


  1. Smocking is fabulous! Do it!

  2. Really cute bag, can't wait to see how your interpretation turns out.

  3. I've been wanting to try smocking too. I just did shirring (on the sewing machine) with elastic thread for the first time. Not the same thing, but a similar effect and I adore it.

  4. I love shirring too! It's kind of like magic.

  5. well, let's see it done!!!!
    you're being challenged...
