1  70s shoulder bag made of denim in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by Weidenkätzchen on: October 19, 2006 03:55:22 AM
This bag is a rather simple one i guess, but took me quite a long time because of all the bias binding with which I had never worked before.

Anyway I think it turned out nice although the little pocket in front isn't really in an upright position. But this makes it look even more handmade, don't you think?

I took the pattern from a 1976's sewing book and altered it a little (infact just for the pocket inside and the Velcro, which is obviously not that much altering).

Oh, and I made another one with yellow bias binding to better myself on that one, but it was still quite slippery to sew with. Also it didn't turn out the same on both sides of the binding. Does anyone have any suggestions on that?



So here are the pics (quite crappy, unprofessional and dark but I hope it shows everything):

2  Yarn from Russia - Translation of label? in Knitting: Discussion and Questions by Weidenkätzchen on: August 14, 2006 04:19:47 AM
Hi everyone,

this is my first post, so if I do anything wrong please forgive me. Also don't pay attention to my poor English...

I got a huge package of yarn from my aunt. According to the label it seems to be yarn from Russia. I scanned it and the yarn too. Maybe someone with a Russian background could help me translate what kind of yarn this is?

Also I would appreciate any suggestions what to do with this yarn, because it's too scratchy and rough to knit clothes from it. My aunt wanted to make some sort of carpet from it but that's not my kind of thing. I thought about making a bag. What else could I knit?

Hope you guys can help me. It would be too bad to leave it lying around as it did already for a year now, don't you think?

Thanks a lot!
