My So-Called Winter Bag



Every season I plan to make a purse or bag for the upcoming season. I had started this purse project several months ago in hopes that it would become my winter bag this year...sadly I'm not quite their yet and winter is halfway over. I seem to get too distracted with fabric.

I got this awesome free pattern from the Berroco website. I have a huge stash of yarn, but was saving this very special skein for something beautiful. I got this gorgeous hand dyed yarn from dkKnits, which worked perfectly. Below is the front of the purse currently on my blocking board.


I know it's hard to see...the lighting is off a little bit...

I have completed both front and back, now just have to complete the strap and lining. Should be ready by...oh lets say....June.

I love that bag. It is just too cute. I like the color in the picture, but the color of yours will look great too!

I also love the quilt in the previous post. Very chic!

I love the Brea - I did one too and I'm still carrying that thing around - I had to replace the handle 'though...
