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.

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

Balancing the black with the embroidery was a great idea. Turned out lovely!

Oh, it's so cute!  I also love the embroidered flowers with button heads.  Isn't it neat how things we first consider design flaws inspire a new addition or adjustment that totally make the creation into something wonderful?!  Love it, lprajogo!

Great bag, love it!  I would love to try and make one of these.  So do you sew the zipper to the liner before putting the liner in? I'd rather know before I try and figure it out for myself Smiley

Actually what I did was attach the zipper to the bag first (just running stitch), then attach the lining afterward and run the stitch on the top egde of the lining at the same place as the previous zipper stitch. I sew it again using sewing machine (then unpick the running stitch afterward). Difficult to explain, but actually it's very simple process.
