leftover love

heart bag

I must still be feeling the after-effects of valentines day... and have hearts on the brain!

this bag is based on my 'little miss two' pattern, with a few modifications

as always, I have worked with reclaimed yarns... this time a pink wool and a purple ribbon yarn

throughout the body of the bag, I turned my work at the end of each round... which gives the bag a slightly different texture

I also used a different type of embellishment... I cut a heart from the scraps of a felted jumper... and then worked a sc, 2ch border around the edge, and attached it to the front of the bag

my daughter loves it... pink and purple are her favourite colours... and you can never go wrong with hearts
