This week we're looking at knitted hand bags and taking a survey. Etsy knitters will be spotlighting hand bags and telling us what they always carry in their bags. We also have a poll running to determine what our readers believe is their most important item they carry in their bag. Please take a moment to join our poll to the right.
Starting things off, I'd like to spotlight 2 bags that are beautifully designed and can hold a lot of items:
The Felted Stained Glass Fan Bag by Knittingdream. Madeline of knittingdream designs and sells the knit patterns in her etsy shop. I have seen these bags in person, as I have the fabulous pleasure of knowing Madeline personally! I have also knit one myself as a Christmas present this past season as a gift for my Mom. Believe me when I say that these bags will hold a lot!! And, they are gorgeous!
One of my other personal favorites, and is on my list to try for myself is Tyger Lily's Wishbone Cable Handbag. This beautiful pattern designed by tygerlily is available for sale in her etsy shop as a downloadable PDF file as well. You can make one for yourself!
Now, empty your handbags and tell me how much stuff you carry in it!
Right now, mine is pretty much limited to a wallet that I carry my cash, cards, and business cards in. When I do carry a bag I've been using my Spinnin' Wheels Backpack. I love how much stuff I can fit in it! I carry my phone, wallet, sunglasses, notebook, digital camera, and my 'Wee Wallet' stuffed with business cards. The PDF is available in my shop for the backpack pattern.
What's in your bag?
