                 by lucinda guy ~ Northern Knits: Designs Inspired by the Knitting 

Traditions of Scandinavia, Iceland, and
the Shetland Isles (i LOVE this book).

i loved making this bag. long on my to do list, i’m so happy to have finally gotten to it.
it was so much fun, the colorwork, embroidery, sewing…all of it!
i made the decrease part for the handles a bit longer, so there would be a bit
more length, but no other modifications were made. and so lucky to have found
a beautiful pair of wooden handles (still attached to an old purse) at a thrift store.
my dear husband sanded them for me and now they are just perfect.

                  love love love my bag.
