Do you have any DIYS that could be used for gay pride? With recent events I think it’ll be appropriate 


For these projects, you don’t have to follow them to a t. You can change the colour schemes from the rainbow flag to any of the other pride flags.

made myself a reversible WIP bag! That panda fabric used to be a pair of shorts that I never wore (but I loved the fabric!) so it was a great way to recycle. 

I made about 4 of these (trying to work out the kinks in the pattern) and the nicest one went to my best friend (a knitter) for her birthday. 

What do you guys use as Work-in-Progess bags?
