Thanks, everybody!

I really enjoyed working on this bag, made as it was

from a several-years-old collection of fibers, including

bamboo, soy, and wools from various corners of the globe :).

 

After trying to actually use the bag, I realize it needs a lining

of some kind....thinking of plain silk in an ivory or brown. Any thoughts?

That's so pretty! I think a brown lining would look lovely.

:tyThank you all for suggestions re: lining the bag...I'm going with

brown silk and will post an update picture when it's done.

 

Meanwhile, Prudence Mapstone has signed on as instructor for

our Fiber Cruise in July right after the Chain Link conference. She'll be teaching freeform crochet AND knitting skills.

I like your bag! And a brown lining will not show the dirt that a bag accumulates as quickly as a cream lining would.

Wow! How lovely! I love the very different stitches you used. It all came together so nicely, too.

As far as lining, I think the plain silk in a mocha or maybe a satin in the same color would be great.
