A while back, I did a bag round-up. One of the patterns I featured was the "Pipistrelle Handbag". Well, I really wanted to make one, but all I had was worsted weight yarn. No DK, and no chunky. Why? No idea.
Anywho, when I was in Michaels yesterday, I saw their wonderful selection of chunky yarn that was on sale for $2.49. Bingo!
So, I was looking through the neutrals, which is what I typically use for bags (So they go with multiple outfits) and I literally almost picked up a pretty cream color. But then I saw this lovely fushia... and it totally and completely captivated me. I figured since it was a pretty simple bag, I could use a bright color without it looking too 'out there'.
As soon as I got home, I got right to work. And finished it this afternoon! Amazing how fast chunky yarn works up.
And how pretty is this?!
I love how the bottom of the bag is kind of tapered. Adds such lovely shaping and a great look.
And of course I needed a button. So, I went searching for the perfect one. Two stores later, the perfect button was found. Oh what I do for the perfect look....
So there's my bag! And I absolutely love it!
Have a wonderful day!
