Its the Booga Bag pattern, but I didn't like the handles done the way the pattern said.

I did the pattern exactly as the instructions said, then didn't fold the sides in for the box shape. Also added the grommets.

I have just felted my Booga Bag and am waiting for it to dry. How did you do the handles? Did you cut the I-cord in half? I would appreciate your comments x

First off, what a great colorway for a bag.Secondly, love the idea of gromets for the handles, sure to make the bag last longer. Third, you did a great job on the lining, as someone said above, very professional.

I'm :mrgreen: with envy.

Beautiful--I like the idea of the gromets also--are they difficult, I've never used them.

They are so easy to use. I bought 10 of them at Wal-Mart for 3.96.

For the lining: someone gave me a link in another thread to a wonderful site that explained step by step and even had a chart for working out the measurements.

Great bag! :happydance: I was wondering how you sewed the lining in? I made a bag and did your basic hem stitch and it quickly ripped out. I re-sewed it using smaller stitches. Now I just finished another bag and was wondering if this is the best method. I have also seen people put in buttonhole and buttons. Any thoughts?

I did a very very tiny whip stitch. I don't know how to sew a button holes, and not sure how to do them on a felted bag. This is the second bag I have made

Would you post the link for the lining? I made a lining for my felted bag, but made it from scratch...I'd love to see how to do it in a more efficient way.
