Sometimes it works out that I have a finished object to post on FO Fridays.
My Garter Stitch bag is finished. Strap. Lining. Button Loop. Button. Finished.
I decided not to use the leather straps as they weren’t long enough for my comfort. So I knit an I-cord around some nylon rope.
I only made one strap because I don’t like two straps on my shoulder. It seems like one is always falling off and I’m constantly fiddling with it. After the strap was felted, I sewed it to the inside of the bag.
This is the outside with the strap sewn on.
And this is what it looks like on the inside. I knit about 25 rows flat so I had a flat section to attach to the bag. 10 rows would have done the trick but I wanted to make sure it was big enough. Better to be safe than sorry. I sewed on the button loop, too, but I forgot to get a picture of that part.
The next step was attaching the 1 1/2 inch button. This was something I actually had in my button stash. The price was right at 25 cents.
Then I lined it.
With the lime green.
Because I liked it the best.
I’ll have Mr. Aitch take a picture of me with the bag so you can get a better idea of the size. I’ll put the details on my Ravelry page, too.
