I love your booga colors
I love the size of the booga. My booga bag is perfect for every day, just throw in wallet & few necessities and good to go !
I think yours is GAWGEOUS

Sorry you're not happy with the size, but I think it looks great! What yarn is that?

I love the colors, too, if that's any consolation. :(

It's a gorgeous bag Koolbreeze, sorry you're so disappointed with the size, but such a pretty bag, I'm sure you will manage to find use for it.

It's *really* cute, Carmell, but I agree. When you knit it up exactly according to the pattern, it does come out a bit small. I've been using a double strand of wool & size 11 needles to do mine, and they've been coming out a bit larger.

I do love that color!!!

It is a cute bag. I love the colors you used, they are beautiful.

The bag looks tall enough in the picture. Is it the width that is to small?
