I've been experimenting with using strips of cloth rather than yarn. I was trying for a scarf but it was turning out too heavy and stiff, so I turned it into a handbag!
Since I was going for a scarf the bottom was done last on this one. I lined it and added pockets as well inside. I will be adding large snaps to hold it closed. Its about 15" tall
This is my 2nd one, I made the bottom 1st and it looks a lot neater. I have not lined it or added a handle yet. This one is shorter and probably a better size, about 12" tall. I will most likely will fold over the top edge like I did the 1st one and cover this semi raw edge with the lining.
I have a 3rd one started in variegated colors similar to the 1st one but not stripey.
Mom wants one in all colors so I will be making more. Hopefully there will be a market for them.
