Hey guys–I’m searching the internet for bag patterns…my sil is here and I’ve said I’d make one for her…I think she wants something kind of like a shoulder bag/tote bag…anyone have particular patterns they like that they could direct me to? TIA!!
try the booga bag http://www.blacksheepbags.com/booga_bag.html
Or one of these.
Thanks V but she didn’t seem interested in the booga…Ingrid–I’m still making my way through them. She has actually picked out some cute hand bags she likes a lot too…I just thought someone might have a length to something obscure that I hadn’t seen already…
I did the Lucy bag for my wife. It can be done in a variety of sizes. Andrea made one too.
Thanks Jeremy…I’ll take a look at it!
I have a Lucy OTN now… it’s becoming slow… but i REALLY like the handles.
Hey Jeremy…what’s a Lucy bag? :??
Here is the Lucy Bag: http://www.blackberry-ridge.com/lucybag.htm
I’ve done two of them now. They are fun to knit, although I made the largest size both times and it did take me a while!
Hilde: What yarn are you using to make yours?
I don’t know! It’s something pink yellow blue and green cvarigated that i got on clearance somewhere. It’s only 50% wool, though, and I felted my swatch by hand, which turned out OKAY, but I think it’s going slow because I’m not sure if it’s going to turn out like I want it. :rollseyes:
I think it’s called tosca??? I was blinded by the pretty colors and the $2.00 price tag
I’m going to do another in lambspride I think. We can consider this one my lucy experiment :??
Thanks, Hilde. My first was a Lucy experiment too! LOL. I bought a solid color - Paton’s 100% wool. It turned out nice - a solid light brown. That was for my mother. My aunt saw it and wanted one exactly the same. Now I want one but I want a different yarn. Someone on this board posted theirs in a multicolored yarn and it was so cool! I just haven’t had time to run to the LYS to check out my choices!
