Yesterday during lunch I went to JoAnn Fabrics to get beads, purse handles and fabric for lining my Girly Bag. Boy, did that take longer than I thought! The yarn I’m using is Berroco Bonsai in Japanese Maple. It might be hard to see in my picture, but the yarn is a dark red-ish color with a purple-ish ribbon. I had to look through a lot of beads before I found something that would work. I finally settled on some small Swarovski crystal beads in Light Amethyst. I didn’t have time to look at fabric, so I’ll have to look this weekend. I finished knitting the flower last night, so here is my Girly Bag with all the knitting complete:
I have not attached the handles or flower yet. What do you think of the flower? I think it’s kind of cute, but I’m not sure if I want to attach it to the bag or not. What do you think?
Wish me luck on the lining…I haven’t tried sewing in years and I don’t have a sewing machine so I hope I can make it look nice :)
