My Hakelbeutel

Haekelbutel Bag

The one that Dawn gave me?

Well, as I was writing about it... I remembered that Dawn and I had worked that Pattern at the same time...

Which meant that I, too, had made a Hakelbeutel bag!!!!

But where is mine? 

WELL... It's not QUITE finished yet...

(So this Unusual Looking Photo is a view of the inside of My Hakelbeutel Bag...
I love the way the light is shining through the holes) 

How long have you been following my blog for?

Were you with me in Early 2009?

If you were, then you might remember this project.

It started out with some experimental dyeing with these results.

Then came a little more dyeing, and I worked this new yarn into a crochet bag.

The bag was WAY too big, so I worked up a quick swatch for felting.

So far so good the swatch was a success!!!

And I gave  you a sneak peek at how the bag turned out after felting...

But that's where the story ended.


I don't know!

I just kind of got lost on what to do for the handles,
and the project ended up packed away for a few years...

So what do you think?
Is it time to get my act together and finish it off?

I still don't know what I'll do for the handles though.

Any suggestions?

I remember this! My goodness, time flies! I think you should finish it, because I love the colours... but I have no suggestions for the handles. I am *sort of* thinking that fabric would be nice.

I know I'm kinda late in the game joining this conversation, but if you haven't finished this bag yet, I think it would look fabulous with wooden handles!! :)
