Okay, so I hijacked the title from James Brown...
I've been carrying my knitting around in a boring book bag for months. I decided it was time for something a little classier.
Last year I got a short stack of upholstery samples from the free table at guild. It was time to pull them out and DO something with them.
Once the bag was made, I got the idea to add leather purse handles from a fiber friend who put some on her felted bag. It dressed it up a lot!
I finished the bag a month ago, but the handles had to come on a slow boat from China, literally. Five weeks after I placed the order, I was able to finish my bag. Woot! No more cotton canvas for me.
