Hey there,
This isn't technically finished, it needs something to fill the empty space inside and some closure. Kind of like your ex boyfriend ... or me needing chocolate...

Anyway I quite like it, I saw a picture of a bag in a book that looked like this...and thought it would make a nice cushion. The yarn is very chunky.

It's pretty! What size beads did you use to fit over the chunky yarn?

Thanks everyone.

I had never done beading before, but it is actually very simple. The hard part was threading them on the chunky yarn! I have a book that explains how to do it with lots of pictures.
I don't know what size, they were just the biggest in a colour I liked. They are painted wooden beads. I had to pull lots of fluff balls from around them as they were actually a tad small, and sort of fluffed up the yarn a bit.

I glad you like it. :muah:
