I made this bag for the Giant Theme Swap.  Two of my partner's themes were Owls/birds and bicycles, so I decided to tie the two together.  I used some variegated chunky yarn I had lying around w/ size 8s I think.  It's lined w/ an inner zip pocket.  I haven't sewed in awhile so the lining is a bit sketchy.  Oh well.  I'll probably make myself one as stuff is always falling out of my pockets when I'm bicycling.  Hope you like it!

I think the lining is good! I love the stitching - that owl is so cute! I love the color contrast with that oatmeal color and the red!

Thanks everyone!  I don't have a pattern.  I just knitted a long rectangle (stockinette then moss stitch for the top edges)  w/ a button hole, folded it in half, and knit some straps w/ button holes.  I do have a chart for the owl I can post after work.
