FO Friday

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.
