View Full Version : FOs: Bags for my sisters

12-21-2008, 10:54 AM
I made these bags over the last couple of weeks as Christmas gifts for my 3 sisters. They are all Noro Kureyon. Two are Booga Bags (http://www.blacksheepbags.com/booga_bag.html) and the other is a Sophie Bag (http://www.blacksheepbags.com/sophie_bag.html). The button and pendants are from JoAnn. I finally got the Kureyon to felt fully after 40 minutes in the washer!

Wow, all three are superb in color and in craftmanship! I love the way you've dressed them up with those pendants. Your sisters sure are blessed with a sis like you! :)

I'm knitting a Purse for my sister. I kinda messed up, the pattern calls for seed stitch, and in a hurry plus being interupted I misread the pattern, so it is in k1 p1 ribbing, I'm way to far into it to change, and since I'm using Lion Brand Thick and Quick it's turning out fine.

Your bags will be nice gifts.

I made a new years resolution last January to learn more knitting techniques and start a shop on etsy.com. I did both. My shop is meager, mainly because of the 23 bags I made, I ended up selling many locally to friends, and giving away the rest. But I learned so much and am stuck on felting my knit projects.

I'm new here, haven't knitted in years, and even then, I never did anything but scarves...but oh....those purses are gorgeous and very inspiring! Your sisters will love them, I know I would!

They all turned out great...I'm sure your sisters will LOVE them! :inlove:

GORGEOUS! They'll love them! I love the striping on these. I haven't felted in a while now and have decided a little felted bag to carry small knitting projects around in will be my next project!! :)

Slim, those colorways are absolutely gorgeous! So vibrant!! :inlove:

Which colors did you use?

The first bag is mostly 182, with a little 184 and 150 thrown in. The second is 184, and the third is 150.

Oh my! These are fabulous bags! My favorite is the Sophie. I think I like the shape of it best! The button embellishments added a wonderfully artistic touch, too! Great job, Slim!!!

The colors are purty :inlove: And I love the special buttons:heart:

Those are really neat, I wouldn't mind one for myself! Pretty and warm too (in case of emergency you huge it in front of yourself) (it was 15 degrees in New York last weekend)
