Branching out...bags!

I saw some of these bags recently and thought...I can make that! I have been racking my brains for a Mother's day present, and thought I could make Mum a knitting bag, and Mum-in-law a shopper...or maybe a knitting bag too, we will see.

So here's the article.

Nice and roomy, and with a couple of pockets for knittingy things.

The only mishap was when I discovered that my nice new machine would only do button holes up to 2.7cm. The button I had chosen was 3 cm! Still, I managed to find a lovely retro number in my vast collection (I've taken to buying buttons from charity shops) that was exactly 2.7cm. Phew.

Might make a few more of these babies, we will see.
