FO - Vintage Bubble Bag for Christmas present

I made this one with leftovers from clogs. I threw in a skein of Kureyon, too. you can see where the Kureyon is (the top section) because there’s kind of a foggy grey fuzziness to that area.

That is so pretty! WTG! :thumbsup:

VERY pretty, Jod!!

What’s the difference between a vintage and not-so-vintage bubble bag??

I love the shape of that!

thanks ladies :smiley: :heart: ! I had a lot of fun picking out the yarns for this one, as well as actually following the pattern for the first time - sort of (I did the garter stitch top but my Kitchener stitch joining the handles to the bag is more like a “sew the living crap outta this join so it won’t break apart” stitch.

KK - the Not-So VBB is more of a rectangle or ‘banana’ shape, and has a loop closure. here, let me take a look at the book:

VBB:
“This bubble bag reminds me of my mom’s shopping bag - roomy and practical. The vintage look is very stylish right now, and although I used colors that are subtle, you can make yours wild and bold”.

NSVBB:
“The sedate Vintage Bubble Bag is reinvented with funky yarns and different handles”.

(err… jeez, that really helps describe the differences… sorry. :lol: )

The bag looks great, Jodi!! I love the colors. :thumbsup:

I love the shape of this bag, Jodi! Very nice…I want one :smiley:

WOW! That is soooo nice! Great job! :thumbsup:

PRETTY! :cheering: :cheering:

:happydance: Great job!!! Love the purse

thanks everyone :smiley: :heart: !

oops - I thought 640x480 was ok… but I forgot that it becomes 480 tall and 640 WIDE when I post them landscape-style. :doh: thx mods for editing :D.

“sew the living crap outta this join so it won’t break apart” stitch.

Is there a video for that one?? :roflhard:

So pretty Jodi! Love the colors.

Now that is adorable! I love it!!

thanks Julie and cryttle :smiley: :heart: !

LOL… nuh uh… video :?eyebrow: would be actual visual proof :shock: of my insanity! :smiley: :lol:

I’m felting my Not So Vintage right now, I decided not to do the button strap. And I don’t think mine will be a banana shape–mine never look like the pictures…I consider it more of a Jr. Bubble bag :smiley:

Bag looks great!! Nice job! :cheering:

So pretty! I like the size of that one.

thanks for the compliments :heart: :smiley: !
