Oooh, it's gorgeous. I would love one just like it. I usually always buy red bags, so am loving the red trim you chose. Wish you lived closer and I could join your knitting group.

I thought it was entralac. You mean you had to sew all that together? Sounds like a bit of work. :-) It turned out beautifully. I love the lining.

Thanks! The one with the red trim isn't mine... you're looking at Ishi's work in those Ravelry photos. She's the original designer

Yes, I sewed it all together. It wasn't too bad. I normally find seaming & weaving to be very mindless and relaxing, but I'll admit to being tired of by the end of this one LOL I'd never heard of entrelac until this thread, actually.

I love it! Were you able to print the page from Ravelry with the pictures? I can't seem to print it to use as a "pattern" ... I can't wait to start my squares

I just copied/pasted the photos I needed to show how it goes together, plus Ishi's basic directions, onto a Word document and printed it out that way.

What yarn/colours are you using?

I have to look in my stash ... I have lots of Patons Merino (my favorite felting yarn) and will use a dark color and off white ... I do like the black and white ... One more question ... what size does the bag "end up" ? I love the way it "shapes" at the bottom. Also, how did you seam together ... mattress stitch ? ... you did such a good job it looks like one piece of fabric!

I like to seam and weave, too.

Mine ended up about 14" side to side at the widest point, and about 12" from the bottom to where the strap starts. It's not super-felted, I'm sure I could have gotten it smaller, but it's about the size I was trying for.

I don't know if there's a term for how I seamed it up, I just used some of the yarn ends and "sewed" it. I was more worried about it being secure, figuring the felting and the lining inside would hide any imperfections in the seaming.

Glad I'm not the only one who likes to seam and weave, most knitters look or act as though I'm nutty for finding it relaxing LOL
