View Full Version : My (finally) completed booga bag

Here's some (horrible) pictures of my finnished booga bag. I used a pattern from Wendy Knits, which made it a little larger than the original. For me, the finnished size is about two small cereal boxes. (I didn't measure, I'm lazy :lol:). And well frankly, there is nothing in there, so it's all saggy! :teehee: It was something fun to make, but...I don't know, I guess I'm not all that crazy about it.

I used Knit Picks Wool of the Andes Firecracker Heather and then Snickerdoodle. The icord (which I still need to put in) is red as well.

But, I think it's a good size for some smaller knitting projects to carry along. I think to me, felting was the best part!

It looks great, Melissa! A new knitting bag!! :cheering: :teehee:

I made a bag when I first started knitting that I was intending to use as a knitting bag, but it ended up way too small. :doh:

Very cute! I love the east/west shape of the bag. I'm using my Booga as a mini knitting tote too! :thumbsup:

Thanks everyone! :muah:

I finally put an upcoming project in there. The needles actually stick out of the bag, which is somewhat of a bummer (given it's not very tall). But, it definately works. And is a little more fashionable than the current ugly green canvas type bag I'm using! :rofling:
