New Bag and I'm now Taking orders

Here is the latest bag. What do you think of the colour ? If anyone is interested I have now decided to take orders for the bags. I love making them, but have decided that four bags is quite enough for me to own, so I may as well sell them (hopefully). The only downside is that they are expensive to make  and of course as I have to knit them and then felt them in the wash it's time consuming as any knitter/craftsperson knows. So I have to charge for my time as well as making costs. If anyone is interested please let me know and I will reveal the cost.

This is a new detail that I have added on the back of the bags. I have needle felted a small flower onto the actual bag, whereas on the front the flowers are on brooch pins so can be removed.

All the bags now have a roomy and fairly deep inside pocket, to take a mobile phone keys etc.

I really like this colour and have another gorgeous colour ready to start the next bag. It's in yummy lime, aqua and browns.
Here is a reminder of the last three bags. Varied sizes and all Very individual. These are made from my own pattern, so are really different.


  1. Oh, another gorgeous bag Maureen. (And yes, I think I am over-using the 'g' word today!)

  5. Hi Ali, thanks for the comment and I'm glad you like the bags. I love using them as they are so individual. I will e-mail a price and sizes, and colours available. I don't have any made to sell at the moment so I would have to make one if you were interested.
    I hope you are OK and it good news that you are crocheting again.
