Those are so great!  I love the colors on the top one.  what yarn is that, if i may ask?
Thanks for sharing the link, also.  Now i have one MORE thing to distract me from getting any work done!  Grin
The first bag I made with fabric from a skirt that had a broken zip and a lovely top layer of organza with embroidery on it, which I cut into a continuous strip then wound into ball together with an odd ball of mohair and some thin green and turquoise wool to make a thick yarn. I halved this so that I would have enough for each 'handle' part then made a thick yarn by winding together the rest of the mohair and wool for the main bag part. The lining of the bag was cut from an old chinese silk jacket (charity shop for 20p!) which had stains on it and was no good for wearing, and the bow was made from a strip of lining from the same jacket made into a tube and pressed flat, then attached to one side if the bag. I then threaded a vintage buckle through the fabric strip which gathered it up so it looked bow like and attached it to the other side. I needed to put a couple of stitches in the middle just to keep it in place.

Hope this was useful and understandable!
Thanks for all your comments, I wish I had more crafty friends like you lot that I could give them to, my sister seems to get everything as she is the only person I know who appreciates this sort of stuff, everyone else would prefer to look like head to toe department store!

Those bags are adorable! The colors on both of them really make an impact. Also, your labels are a really great idea, and super sweet besides. So yeah. It rocks.

woo hoo!  I looove quick projects!  I used size 11 needles but still cast on 20 for a cute little bag.  I'll post a pic later if I can.  I have yet to line it (but I think I might not, it's quite thick due to the 11's), but it only took a couple hours, including a misstart.  I'm thinking that these'll be great for all of my "unknowns" on my christmas list!  Smiley

i love your bags and labels! would you share with us how you made the label? i want to put label on the projects i completed so when i give them away as presents, they'll know who that's from after many years.

Hi there,
I used 1" wide bias binding for the labels. Using a simple split stitch and embroidery thread to do my name and then attaching it to the lining of the bag with running stitch all around the edge. (Oh and I did a simple flower in one corner!)

Happy Crafting
