So I made this bag from this pattern. http://all-tied-up-in-stitches.blogspot.com/2006/06/little-something-for-you.html Which I added several more rows to the body and to the strap, which was good because this wool felted up a little tighter than I thought it would.

Before felting


After felting


It was cute but I thought it needed something else. So I embroidered it. I was lazy and didn't feel like dragging out a hoop. This is my first one I've done with no pattern, I just did it from the picture.


The bag is too small for my current wallet so I lined it and added some pockets. I need to go get some round elastic so I can secure my cards and such in better, I have some cute leaf buttons I'm going to use to loop the elastic over.



C&C welcome

I use paper to lay out where I want my pockets to be. I'll lay the bag out on the paper draw a line on it, then set down my things I want to go where, add a little space and cut it all out.

It'd hard to explain I guess but once I figured it out I've been using it ever since.

Has this bag been field tested?
Are the cards and cash secure enough with just the tab, magnet closure, and some elastic pieces you're going to add?

Let us know how you feel about it's security after you've used it a bit.

By the way, your work is fantastic.  I envy you.  I can't knit or crochet a stitch.  I'm not even sure I can spell crochet correctly  Cheesy

I had it out shopping the other day, despite the fact that I thought the cards were going to be loose they were perfect. No shifting at all. It sits up so close under my arm I barely know it's there even. Cheesy
