For xmas, my parents bought me "25 Bags to Knit", since on top of knitting, I've also gotta bag fetish!

While I was in London, I bought this amazing camoflauge colored Jaeger Merino Wool, and couldn't decide what to do with it, so I used it to make the orange "clementine" bag on pg. 86. And instead of stitching daisies I used metal studs to give it that... err... "I'm gonna kick ur booty" look? hehe!





The patterns are pretty easy, but the bag itself isn't meant to carry anything heavier than keys and a wallet... give or take a couple of butterscotch candies  Wink... I should probably line it, to make it more sturdy.

All in all, it was really quick and fun to make. The handle is basically one big button hole... Though I won't say that part didnt' hurt.  Tongue

That looks great! I love the studs - they're a nice touch.

One hint - I make a lot of knit and crochet bags in that same style, and I've found that sewing a lining into it will make them a lot sturdier so you can carry heavier stuff around.  Cheesy

Very nice! Thats so ironic because i've been starring at a photo of this very bag (from the cover of the book, online) for days, using it as inspiration for the bag I'm currently knitting. Overall, would you recommend this book?

I'd say it's an OK book. Most of the patterns are very similar, with a lot of stitch and color variations. Some Intarsia and beadwork as well. It has some cute ideas and they make great gifts. Overall I'd give it a 6/10. :-T

I'd love to see your bag when you're done!

I love the bag--but I have to confess, the reason I read this thread is because I thought you had designed a bag for "combat babies"!

I see whatcha mean. I named it after that song by Metric "Combat Baby"... I thought it fit, since it's a small bag. That would be so cute, though, if someone were to design a bombat bag for babies! Load'em up with formula ammo!  Grin
