Small Bag

Here is the small (6x5.5) bag I made this weekend.
I locker hooked the canvas with some inch wide bias
rayon and I don't think I will do that again, even though I have piles of the stuff. One inch was too wide for my canvas and so it was very difficult to hook.The lining peaking out of the top, is from a repurposed silk shirt. I thought it was very clever of me to cut the lining to include the front pocket of the shirt. That would make an inside pocket in the bag with almost no work on my part. Well, that sort of worked out. The pocket is really a little large for the bag, so when you put your hand into it,your hand tends to slip into the pocket. Oh well. It was a good idea and I will do it again. The beads are fabric beads that I made some time ago. Oh, and yes there is some novelty yarn in the bag.

Just so you will know--I did finally clean off my deak and pay the bills. I didn't want you to worry.

Thanks again to Bobbie for turning me on to Locker Hooking.

You are so funny! I love it that you repurposed!
Consistant you are and I enjoy that about you. I think the project was very inspiring, too.
