I know this thread is a tad old, but it seemed like the most logical place to put my weekend creation......yes, *another* Sophie bag. Smiley I love these bags! This one is knit in a yarn I bought from ebay seller sanfelipeysantiago. I'm happy with how the colors felted, though I think I felted it a bit too much, as it's quite small.

before felting.....

and after.....

This is my Sophie.  It was my first non-scarf project.  All of the yarn was Cascade 220.  The bag looks cute, but I'm still having issues with it.  It ended up being too small to fit my wallet inside, and the strap is really flimsy and stretches a lot whenever I put anything inside of the purse.  Any ideas on how to correct this?  I finished this purse in October, and I still haven't lined it.

I used Lamb's Pride as well, and I would agree - unless you're doubling up on the 220, I like Lamb's Pride better for this project - I think it makes sturdier bags.  I was worried about the twisted i-cord straps, too, plus I just didn't like the look of them, so instead of doing the i-cords, I just knitted one long strap in garter stitch.  So far it's holding up really well, although I think I want to make it even wider next time.  I posted this pic once already on the main knitting page, but here's my bag:

Yay, my first post!  Cool

Here's my Sophie; I ran short of the brown Jo Sharp yarn so I made the second handle pink and threw together some flowers to tie it all together (IMO).  This was my first attempt at felting and I was surprised how much it shrank in the washing machine, thankfully after a bit of tugging and pulling it turned out big enough to fit my essentials in.  Next time I'll twist the handles more, ever the perfectionist!

well, i finished 2 more! the one for my sister is the yellow and blue one on the right...i used a smaller yarn, and the bag itself is smaller (i think it came out pretty cute  Wink) and i added a button to keep it closed.

i love the one on the left - maybe i'll keep it! i used a tahki magic yarn, the color is called sand and sea...
i look forward to seeing all of your bags...

i made the sophie out of some australian wool(picked up at the lys--no label--and it's by weight not skein)it was huge before felting. it took one cycle in my top loading maytag----the bottom was to stretchy--but i was afraid it would be too small if i ran it thru another cycle---i put a piece of that ridgy plastic in the bottom--my daughter loves it---her friends all want it now.....

i finally loaded the picture(((thanks  natalie)

Here's a Sophie made from Patons Classic Merino-New Denim. I would have loved to make it in other colors but our store only has dull colors. I added a chain stitched loop and leather button.

Sorry I'm late to the thread, but I wanted to show off my Sophie.  This is a wonderful pattern for a beginner that wants to try new things.
