runnermom - Thank you! I absolutely love love love this bag - the fabric choices are rught up my alley too Smiley

I'm semi-new to sewing, but with a new sewing machine as a wonderful christmas present, i'm jumping in full steam ahead. I really appreciate you taking the time to post this.

What type of interfacing did you use? I've tried a few different ones, none that I've loved.... and would love some help in that area to give the bag some great structure like yours has.

I actually really like it - fabric and all. But then again, I refer to myself as "your typical 50's housewife" since I love to knit, sew, scrapbook, bake, cook...

Anyway, I think it's fab Smiley Great Job and beautiful design
23  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Re: I really need help...handles on a knitted bag on: February 14, 2007 09:29:44 AM
I think you are attaching the handles just fine, but using either the wrong handles, or the wrong size knitted "fabric". I'm a knitter who recently got addicted to sewing (mainly by making knitted bags like you are talking about...).

My suggestion would be to get bigger handles since you said that you can't convince your MIL to make a different pattern. Also, another way to attach the handles would be with the lining - there are lots of creative ways to use a tab-attach handle when you put a lining in that bag (and since it's knitted, the liner will help shape the bags and reinforce it)

Good luck with your business...I've always wanted to do that, but I seem to have grandiose plans that I never do much with - so for now, it's making bags for me and family)

OMG - the fabric is beautiful and the colors are great together. The shape of this is fantastic! What a beautiful design - I will keep my eyes out for it when it hits the shelves!

Oh - I always love your bags - just gorgeous fabric. Here in CO, facing our 8th snow storm in 8 weeks - I too am ready for spring!

wow - that is beautiful. I love the brilliant color - knitting is what got me into sewing and making purses to begin with. Great Job!

Cyn, I always love your stuff. I was an italian major in college, and did a summer abroad in Florence. Lots of your colors remind me of Tuscany! Just beautiful

I love love love it! My sister just got to bring home her beautiful bundle of joy - her first baby, a girl, who spent the first three months in the NICU because she was born at 29 weeks and was only 2 oz. - But it has a happy ending because she's now home with mom and dad doing just fine Smiley

I've just gotten into sewing with the addition of a new sewing machine for christmas (though I've been lurking here for awhile) - I have been saving all the diaper bags to my favorites...trying to get the courage to try it out! the zippers and elastic are all new to me, but she says she'd be happy with whatever it looked like Smiley
