Originally, I started this bag last year when my momma was visiting me in Fort Collins in May. I finished the knitting portion at that time but always knew that I wouldn’t be using it until I had a lining inside.
Fast forward to this year.
I finally actually sewed in that lining (by hand, badly) and now the bag is usable. It’s small, which has pros and cons, but it’s cute and different and made by me so dammit I’m gonna use it. On the weekends. And when I don’t have to carry many things.
The cotton yarn we used is soft and inexpensive but it also pills a little too easily for my preference, little pink tufts were all over my black tank this weekend (they probably blended in with all the dog hair, I’m glam like that). So if I knit this again in the future I’d use a hardier yarn that also might not sag so much in the strap.
Also, it was this pretty girl’s 7th birthday this past Saturday.
Have you made any knitted bags? Do you use them?
