My niece, whom I love very much and who is crafty herself, had her 14th birthday on the 16th January. For her I made this little bag.
The bag itself is knit with Novita's Rustika yarn, which is 51% wool and 49% acrylic. It felts a bit, so that's what I did with it - felted it. The pattern is the buttonhole bag from Mason-Dixon knitting. I think I used 10 mm needles and ca. 100 grams of yarn.
The bag came out really ugly, so I decided to felt some flowers to decorate it. I got out my feltmaking gear and made three different colours of felt pieces. From these pieces I cut flower and leaf forms, and then sew them on to the bag. I think they really cheered the bag up.
Hope she likes it!
I love the bag, the flowers really cheer it up and make it a one of a kind bag!
