This is made from leftover yarns. The pink yarn is sport weight, and the white one is worsted weight, so I split the white yarn into two to make them the same weight.

However, there were still not enough yarns to finish the bag. In the end I just used black acrylic thread (double it). The result, the black seems too strong. To balance the whole thing, I just embroidered some flowers and attached some buttons.

I used black fabric for the lining. Also put a zipper. A Zipper is a must, since I dont want all my things come out if I drop my bag. I want all my things are secured inside.





Thanks for looking!

I love the color combo, very pretty pink!
I like closures on my bags also.

So pretty!  I'm not a pink person but I could be convinced to carry this!  Well done.  The detailing really adds to the look.

if you can't be a good example then you'll just have to be a horrible warning.

I really like that! With the flowers, the black isn't really that overpowering.
