This bag was made using yarns in various heathery shades of brown - gingery and chocolatey browns and pale coffee - greens and teal, purple and wine. The colours are mixed by combining different yarns, a bit like mixing paints really.
The bag was knitted by hand and then felted in the washing machine - theres a post on how to do this here, which also has a link to the website where I got the pattern which I adapted for this bag.
There are 2 little pockets on the outside, one on each end - knitted and felted as part of the bag
and suitable for a mobile phone, or tickets or... other little things...
The bag is finished by hand and lined with vintage fabric - a lovely tie-dyed piece of cotton which shades from pale to darker purple - and there is are 2 internal pockets in the lining.
The bag fastens closed with a vintage button:
The measurements are: about 13.5inches/34cm across, measured flat, and 11.5 inches/29cm from the top edge to the base. The base is 4 inches/10.5cm by11.5 inches/29cm.
The handles are 32.5inches / 82.5 cm long.
