My Bigga Bag…I increased the size of the pattern in multiples and posted a photo in my blog thread. It also used 5 1/2 skeins of Noro, rather than the 3 skeins called for in the pattern. I don’t think it would make a good knitting bag though, unless you just used it for one project. I e-mailed the designer about the floppiness of the bag and she said that Noro felts “droopier” than other yarns. I wasn’t very thrilled with the bottom not being so sturdy. As far as the size when finished felting my bags shrunk more in height than width and finding an object to air dry it on was a pain…I ended up using a plastic garbage container from Roses!
I ended up going to AC Moore and picking up the counted crossstich plastic grid and two pieces of the stick on felted sheets and cut them to the size of the bag bottom…sticking a piece on each side of the grid to insert in the bottom of the back to square it and prevent it from being so droopy. It turned out to be a cute bag that I gave to my daughter-in-law for Mother’s Day.
I saw a thread somewhere on this site concerning lining but can’t seem to find it. I think this bag would look nice if lined and perhaps sturdier, but I’m no seamstress either!
I have 3 skeins of Noro in a different color that I will probably knit the Booga by pattern…eventually
