Lindsey’s Bag is Complete

I have been working on Lindsey’s ( my baby sister) birthday present for a few months now. She is a beginner knitter but aboslutely loves to do it. I thought that I would support her craftiness with some new materials to work with. To see past posts about the transformation of this bag, check it. If you were at all wondering what Lindsey’s new knitting bag turned out like…. without any further ado, I give you… a bag. This will make its debut this week (Friday actually) when little Lindsey claims she is turning 21 (I still claim its 11)…

Hey bag, you are full of things to knit with. I have collected a multitude of yarn as well as some customized knitting needles… throw in an issue of Knitting magazine and we are on our way here.

Lindsey’s Bag is Complete

Bag de Lindsey’s 21st…

So I have started working on the tote bag for my sister’s 21st birthday… and no, I am not worried about her seeing this because, let’s face it… it may or may not turn out alright. In any event, she is really supportive of my crafty goodness. My grandmother taught me to sew and taught kid sister to knit. Of course, I wanted to knit too but did not have quite the knack for it that Lindsey (kid sister) does and so I quit (I am not usually a quitter). Anyhoo, I know Lindsey would want to see the transition from mere fabrics to a finished good, so here I am… mayhaps I should think about Scotchguarding it in case she spills wine coolers on it. (winky face)



Starting off with the above fabrics… may not use them all but I really thought they all sort of went together… really feeling anything bird related these days, birds, feathers, bird cages.. just not their poop.

Strips for… wait for it… Smocking

I love to smock things…



So this is what I have so far for the front of the bag. I am undecided about which way this bag will go whether it be messenger-baggy-esque or tote-baggy-like but I guess I will just have to see how this takes shape.
