My new bag!

The Pink Glitz! This is some novelty yarn I bought at the dollar store. Lots of eyelash and glitz. It worked up nicely for this project and only took one skein. It’s Patons Glittallic, a 50 gram skein. The bag needs seven 7″ triangles and a strap. I think there was enough yarn left to have made a rope strap for the bag, but I had been playing with that oriental braiding…kumihimo… I made one of these disc’s from a plastic coffee can lid (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aO_jaLp5FYI ) and had this long ribbon braid that just happened to match the yarn perfectly so I used it for the strap. It had a lovely dangle of ribbon on one end and I happened to have a little gold hummingbird charm, which I threaded on one ribbon end. I think it makes nice little bag. It could be an evening bag, but glitz & glitter seem appropriate anytime these days. It’s easy to make. The pattern is one in my book Hats & Bags. 🙂
