I love the look of knitted bags, but I hate the fabric that felting produces. I am desperately craving a bag like this one
, but unfelted. One of my friends would probably die of geekiness if I managed to finish this for her birthday (I'm more of an Imperialist, myself. Bad guys rock). I have a chart, but I've never done anything like this kind of colour work before. *worried*
So, I am coming to you all in your infinite wisdom to advise me on:
a) finding a pattern to base this on, preferably in the round
b) what kind of yarn to use for an unfelted bag (will it always stretch?)
c) finding instructions/an article on how to line a purse, bag, whatever. I have never sewn in my life.
