OMG! I love that bag! Are you doing it all one color? What kind of yarn are you doing?? I would love to make it. It is way more complicated than anything I've ever done though. hmmmm.....

Well...I'm broke. So I'm doing it in Redheart yarn and then lining it. I am going to do it in Purple and black and maybe some blue trim...or lighter purple..or white. *laughs*

I've seen the dishclothes you've done and I think you can do it! The most complicated part will be putting it together...

You are right Nimmie. It does look like simple stitches. The hardest part will definitely be putting it together. And I've never done and i-cord either.

So I'm assuming I'd have to do a swatch to make sure I do it at the right gauge with whatever yarn I use. I'm scared of swatches and checking gauge! :thinking: I've never done it!

But I am getting more and more inclined to make this!!

Swatch? Ummm...

*giggles*

I didn't make a swatch, by my bag is coming out "roomy". So it might not be a bad idea if you don't want a "roomy" bag!

I've never done Icord either, but I have pieced together bags before! So we can figue the I-cord out together!

Just think, what a cool diaper bag it'd make, all home made and wonderful!

ETA: and Rebecca...lol..why not today?

I am hoping to get by with the odds and ends of yarn I have to make it. I have some dark purple, some light purple, some cream and some black. I think they'll all look beautiful together!

I also have some verigated redheart, one has purples and blues and greens and the other various shades of light and dark blues and purples. So I should have plenty to make it striped if I need to. The hardest part I can see will be the handle. 74 inches in moss stitch! Not that it's hard it's just...I don't like moss stitch! LOL. It makes my hands get tired quickly.

I have about an inch of the first panal done if you ladies want to join me!

Also, if this one comes out okay using redheart yarn, I've got some brown and "Aran fleck" redheart that might make a second bag...

Those colors sound like they will look really good together. I have $30 in gift cards to AC Moore so maybe I'll head over there today and see what yarn I can get.

I was thinking it might make a good diaper bag too! :D

I think I'm in on this one. I will make it for my BIL who probably hopes to be to be a monk in another life.
