FO's - Two Finished Booga Bags
I just finished making two Black Sheep Booga Bags (a free pattern).

The first one is for my dh's grandmother. She recently admired the one I made my sister for Christmas last year. I thought it would be a unique gift for a 90-year-old young-at-heart lady.

I used 140g of Noro Kureyon #209...



The only modification I made was to add grommets to add durability to the strap holes.













I made another bag for a friend. She sat beside me one day at church and admired my purse (the first booga bag I ever made). She asked if I would be willing to make one for her to give her daughter, and I readily agreed. She's a sweet lady and a wonderful mom. I counted it a privilege to do this for her.

She ordered the yarn, and when it came in, she delivered it to me.

I used 125g of Noro Kureyon #95...




I added brass grommets to this bag. That was the only modification.















Thanks for looking!

Ya gotta LOVE the booga bag!!!!

Great job, love the colors!!!!!!!!!! Makes me want to go home and make another

Gotta ask though, what are the metal thingies in the handle holes? I've never seen them before. What a great idea.

You are all so kind with your words. Thank you. It does a knitter good.



BTW, if you've never made one of these bags because you're intimidated by the felting process, check out the blog post I wrote yesterday. I took a lot of pictures. Something like this would have helped me a lot my first go-round.
