That Bag is DONE!!!
So it's been years in the making.... but finally that bag is DONE!
Started: Feb 2009
Finished: November 2012
I wasn't completely sure at first. Somehow it felt a bit bland - like it was just quietly waiting to be embellished...
And then a funny thing happened.
I just started using the bag!
You know the deal... Running out the door... Need a bag to throw your latest project into....
All the other project bags are overflowing....
So I grabbed this one in desperation - AND IT IS BRILLIANT!
There's room for my sketch pad and pattern notes, as well as the umpteen different balls of coloured yarn that I need to have on hand...
And still some room left over to throw in my purse, keys and phone, if need be.
If I'm throwing it into the back of the car, then I can just knot the handles together like this.
And when I come home, it hangs happily on the coat rack like that:
I'm loving it EXACTLY the way it is - and it doesn't need a silly embellishment after all.
(That being said, I reserve the right to add said silly embellishment at any time)
PS. If you've been following the progress of this bag over the years, you'll notice that I didn't use the lining or the handles that I planned to... I'm so fickle!
