The Bags, by Win Currie

These little numbers have proved to be truly multipurpose. I had been planning to make myself a small bag of similar design to one I had bought many years ago, big enough for a change purse, comb and lipstick, car keys, wear over the shoulder so your hands are free. Then our Weavers group decided to have ‘Make a Bag’ as the year’s challenge, and the group had a stash of fine cotton. So here is the result. The hardest part was making the initial paper pattern so that I got all the folds and fancy yarn parts in the right places. I was very pleased with the result though. I still have to devise an improved closure design. I welcome suggestions.
