Ms. Poppins Bag
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.
