Ms. Poppins Bag

no longer available from 1 source show
January 2007
Bulky (7 wpi) ?
10 stitches and 16 rows = 4 inches
in St st
US 10½ - 6.5 mm
95 - 190 yards (87 - 174 m)
17" wide at base, 10" wide at top, and 9" high, not including handles

Because the yarn I chose reminded me of a carpet bag, I decided to design a boxy tote like the magical one Mary Poppins carried. To keep things simple, I made a rectangle, folded it, and sewed up the sides. I then sewed pleats into the opening edges to make the bag into a trapezoid gathered at the top. I lined the bag with a store-bought linen napkin and added store-bought handles. I did a little beadwork to add decorative dangles.
