I didn’t take any progress pics of this bag… unless you count the fact that it isn’t finished yet so these are all progress pics. I need a large button for the ribbon loop to hook around.
The pattern is called Noriko Handbag, and is available free at http://www.lazygirldesigns.com
I used fabrics from my stash (aka pile of stuff I have had for a zillion years and don’t remember the fabric composition or original intended purpose of. In this case I can say it is black taffeta and a black and white polyester print.
Being fine fabrics and without any stiffener (interfacing, pallum etc) it scrunches down quite small when not in use.
In use, it has a width and depth of about 15cm each, and a height of about 17cm not including the handles. I lined it with the same fabrics as the outer, but in reverse order – so each plain black panel is lined with print and vice versa.
I made it as a project bag, intended for storing knitting projects on circular needles, or maybe socks on dpns. I have half a child’s skirt in there on a circ, plus a ball of wool, and it fits easily. The whole skirt will fit I believe, and it’s a size 10! (I’ll post it in a zillion years when I finish knitting it…)
