Finally finished! This was fun to knit up but I hated lining it and securing the handles.

From the book Kitty Knits. The original instructions of coarse called for wool and felting.

I do not use wool so I knitted it with Red Heart Super Saver on size US7 needles. Super saver seems to be a heavy, rougher yarn good for projects like this.

Lined with a heavy natural organic cotton canvas. Sewed the butterfly. I made 3 and was not that happy with any of them. The other two are sewn inside the bag.

Thanks for looking!  Smiley
