What do you think of this bag?
I found this bag on a site someone posted here. At first I thought.."NO WAY"...then the more I looked at it the more I got to like it. What do you all think? Isn't it very "unusual??

Definitely unusual. What colors are you thinking? IMHO, a different color combination and I would probably move from 'unusual' to 'pretty cool!'

Wow! I actually love it just as is. That's a bag I would proudly carry anywhere.

The bag itself is ok, but IMO, it would be better without the flowers, and I personally don't like that type of purse handle AT ALL. That's just a preference though. I really like the colors it's knit up with.

At first I thought, "Yuck!" Then the I saw the second picture and thought that maybe it wasn't too bad. so I guess the flowers are the yuck factor. Maybe Horve is right, a different colored flower might be better?

i completely dig on it...i would have to do pretty much the whole thing in different colors though I think cuz i like to work with more vibrant colors. I just can't figure out a good way to shape it after it is felted.

Not my cup of tea, but it is pretty!

When asking questions ALWAYS post the name and a link for the pattern if you have it.

I love it! If I had the skill I would make it. But I am not there yet!

BTW, I am not completely clear on the purse handle attachments. Instructions say to knit in garter stitch a 7 1/2 inch by 3 inch rectangle, felt it, then use it to attach/sew handles to bag. That just doesn't give much detail, does it?

And when a pattern says "sew" in this case, do they mean by sewing machine?
