The bag is finished!!!
I have finally finished the bag. I sewed the bobbles back on (again) in a much more random way and let them kind of fall down the side of the bag. Sounds artistic, hey? In reality it was sew as many as your mental well being will allow, as it was a frustrating and slow job. I put feet on the bottom and then sewed in the handles, not very neatly in retrospect, but oh well. Then I put in the lining and put in magnetic closing thingies. I've never used them before and I am more pleased with the inside than the outside I think! I do like the bag and it is on its first outing today. Nowhere exciting, my daughter has the orthodonist! I have, however, coordinated my clothes today to complement my bag. Call me sad if you like.....
I like the bobbles on the side in the second picture best.
News on other fronts...the Phildar swing jacket is almost knitted, I have half a pocket lining to knit and then I just need to block and sew up. I need to get started on the red surprise project which I am hoping won't take long (I need to get it done before I go to France) and then I plan to get on with my granny squares (which I hope I haven't forgotten to do) and the Mason Dixon log cabin blanket. I might take that with me to France actually, now I think of it. Knitting by the pool...sounds like heaven to me!
