I got a gift certificate for the local yarn store at Christmas and after a while I finally decided on some green yarn. If you look at my past projects I made a similar bag but this is a little more finished and I like the look better. I lined the bag with a dark blue silky fabric that I found in my sisters fabric stash (she hasn't lived with us for three years). I also got the button at the yarn store it reminded my kind of like tree bark. They had buttons that were made out of wood but they were really expensive. The yarn has slight variations in it and when I first looked at it I thought of a forest, hence the tree bark button. I am really happy with how it turned out, after I made the mesh part it took a really long time for me to start on the lining because I don't sew that well.

Nice bag! I love the button and yarn together and the way they contrast with the lining. And it's just the right size for me!
