I wanted a bigger bag to lug around all my stuff (and other people’s stuff ) when out and about.
I doubled the size of the bag and used Manos in 2 different colors. I also added a second i-cord handle so that I could have a lot of weight in the bag. I also used smaller needles - US 11 Options & US 13 Options on a 24" cable instead of US 13 & 15 sizes.
I did line the bag with fabric & interfacing so grommets wouldn’t fit :wall: so I just stitched around the holes for the handles and that worked fine!
This was a great pattern - a very easy way to do colorwork and very easy to alter the size even if you hate math like I do! I just wish I could have gotten the felting and blocking right to line up the squares - the Manos is thick and thin and it felted oddly which explains the problem but I still love how it looks!
