This is made from leftover yarns. The pink yarn is sport weight, and the white one is worsted weight, so I split the white yarn into two to make them the same weight.

However, there were still not enough yarns to finish the bag. In the end I just used black acrylic thread (double it). The result, the black seems too strong. To balance the whole thing, I just embroidered some flowers and attached some buttons.

I used black fabric for the lining. Also put a zipper. A Zipper is a must, since I donít want all my things come out if I drop my bag. I want all my things are secured inside.

This is awesome! What a great way to use up yarn! Did you hand sew on the zipper? I am not a sewer but would love to try!
