Hooray! knitted handbag.

Just posting to show you a bag I finished with the rest of my Minerva wool kit from December. I love it but that one is going on my craft stall in the Spring.


I am in that time when I am in top production so I make things I am familiar with, are quick to complete or from things that recycle materials I already have.

 

I always fall back on my hat pattern, I know it inside out and can make it in lots of different sizes using different hooks and yarn.


Might try some with a pom pom this time.

Just yarning along while the girls do colouring, threading, building dens and making fun this half term holiday. Jo x

    1. I did line it with a fat quarter I won in a giveaway, it makes all the difference then. Good luck with your make

    1. Help yourself to the free pattern on the left sidebar. These are with bonus chunky on a 5mm hook.

  10. Fab bag in great colours - it would be tough for me to part with that! Love the hat pattern, I'll have to make another one as my eldest totally claimed my first one for herself - we added a cool button, but a pom pom would be darling! Chrissie x
