SEE what I finished making today??? I am SOOOO psyched!

THIS  is my new knitting bag; I sent for this pattern from JENI and I have to tell you
it is so well written, easy to follow (even I can do it!--I who have just been moaning about not being able to follow patterns lol)
You can find this fantastic pattern on her website (linked above).

Here is the lining I chose (fun to use fabric you love)
In addition I learned how to box out corners and make drawstring cords neatly (!!) 
all from this pattern.  I can see that I will be making so many more of these beauties.....

Thank you Jeni for such wonderful writing and illustrations......

AND now I can start my next knitting project 

Isn't this cute?? I may make it a bit longer--we'll see....

AND my bag matches my YARN (oh be still my heart!!)
the yarn  is Cascade's Eco 2 and has such a lovely "hand"...

here is the bottom with the boxed out corners.  

(I know I am gushing--but "ME is SO Proud!!) ;--)))

{Fabrics are Joel Dewberry (birds) and I don't know what the lining is--but I like it...}

So Big Happy Hugs, from
