Another completed bag!

I feel like I'm on a roll with these bags. This one is for my oldest DD, Kayla, she is thrilled with it. I used three different yarns. Two wools by Galway, it's their Heather Wool. Then the third was called Kiddy Print it is mixed with the pinkish/purple in the center. The bag has a flat bottom and I did the handles a bit differently. I saw on a website how they fold the bag in and use double pointed needles to make holes in the bag and you thread your I-cord through. I loved the process and it came out exactly how I wanted it to! I use a beaded trim I purchased at walmart, it has a kind of lace mixed in it. It seemed perfect for the bag and it wasn't too hard to keep nice and straight while I hand sewed it to the bag. I already have another one on the needles and hope to have it done by next week!

Another felted bag!

Well, this one worked up nicely. I made this bag for my sister-in-law, Nona. She loves green and I know she will enjoy this bag. I did a flat bottom using two strands of wool. The bag is done in one strand, except where there are "fuzzies", that is one strand of wool and one strand of what is called "bling". I am on a roll with these bags and I have a few more I want to do. But, I am taking a break from bags for a few weeks and am going to try to get going on some Christmas ideas. I'm hoping a Christmas in July KAL will happen on the Knitters Review BB. It would be fun to do!
