Craft Roundup

pink bagblack bag

Yesterday and today I made two totebags. Since I made up the pattern as I went along, they're both flawed. The pink bag doesn't stand up on its own, and the handles are too close together. The black bag doesn't have handles yet, but I'm thinking of adapting the handles from the pink bag.

Both are made from vinyl (the black bag is lined with metalic taffeta), as my goal is to have a knitting bag that can sit on any floor without getting nasty. Fun fact: vinyl can be sewn with a jeans/denim needle; you don't need a leather needle.
