A fun make

I finally got around to using up the remainder of the Wendy Party yarn to make a couple of girl's shoulder bags. I have even done two sizes.

To make, I started with the button hole tab, then increased to the width of the bag. I continued in stocking stitch until it was the required size when doubled up. I then cast off and knitted the shoulder strap separately. I then stitched the sides together and joined the strap, et voila!

I think these are quite fun, even the boys thought so. I am even more determined to knit an adult bag now.

They're adorable. I knit 3 bags last year. One of them was felted and came out perfectly. As for the adult bag, go for it!
