A Quickie Post!


It's still drying but I thought I'd go ahead and take the pic. The Brown/Red felted bag with a flap closure, pattern courtesy of my friend Alice who has a mind for design! I really like the shape and the flap. I eye balled the stripe on the flap to match the one on the body of the bag so I did fret a little about that turning out right. Matches pretty good! It's Paton's merino in a dark brown and deep red not the pinkish red that seems to appear in the pic. Some of you know how much I don't care for pink! The handle is a "flat I-cord" which was rather fun to knit. It's bedtime!

I think it looks great- I do think that the proportions on mine at a bit different .. But your stripe turned out PERFECT-- I never had the 'guts' to make the red strip on the flap-- I just did the red all the way to the point. I hope you enjoy it-- mine is my favorite to carry!

So lovely how the flap and the body line up perfectly! This is a favorite color combo for DD and I and I bet you will get a lot of use out of your new bag.

That's a great bag! I have yet to felt anything (on purpose). I keep meaning to knit a felted bag...eventually.

Hey! This is great! I love it. You and Alice are so very smart! Enjoy it. It must be hard to decide what bag to use when you leave the house ;) Christine M.
