First Hand spun Bag Finally Finished
I was dragging my feet getting this bag done. (see post below on unfinished bag) I finally finished it yesterday. It turned out better than I thought it would. But, its still pretty unfortunate looking. I used a brown denim to line the inside. I made two large elastic pockets inside to hold small knitting or crochet projects. The other side has a large flat pocket with a shorter pocket on the outside of it. The shorter pocket has compartments for pens, knitting needles, etc. I added leather to the handles to attach the handles to the bag. I used recycled leather and free cut the design out. I hand stitched them in place. I'll do a few things differently on the next knitted bag. But, overall, I'm pretty happy with this one. I'm planing on putting it next to the sofa where I regularly sit and knit. It'll be a good travel knitting bag too.
