I got my knitting mojo back a couple of weeks back.
Here’s the result…
I made 2 significant modifications:
- Making 1 handle shorter.
- Closing the seam the other way round so that the shorter handle is in front of the longer handle.
I lined it with a silk handkerchief given to me by someone from a long time ago. Since I don’t use handkerchiefs anymore, it felt right to recycle it. Here’s the interior of the bag and the lining.
I was pleasantly surprised that the pastel blue and small floral print went so well with the earthy brown.
I thought the lining was going to be difficult to do. It is my first attempt. I went through the process in my head step by step and it was, again a pleasant surprise, quite easy.
I’m using it as a lunch tote at the moment.
I double-stitched an animal in front of the bag. I know it is hard to tell from the pictures but can guess what it is? (^_^)
