A New Bag... Done!!!

I'm so happy with this thing I can hardly stand it! Why does wool take so long to dry??? I wanna use it now!!!

Before...

And, after...

And, her pretty shot :)

This pattern is so fun... It's Inga's Haekelbeutel, and if you click on the link it'll take you to the pattern. I've made one before, but took a short-cut and it didn't really work. This time I decided to make the pattern with all 16 squares and felt it because it was so darn big last time. This time it didn't turn out as large, but I wanted to felt it anyways. It's the perfect size for a run to the gym, or a fast trip to the store. I was always a little confused on how the bottom of the bag looked flat. It's actually not flat at all... see???

It's got lots of shape to it, which means it can hold more than a flat bag! Yep, I'm totally in love :) I also took some advice and made modified handles according to Paula on Ravelry. Hers seemed much more sturdy, and since I'm planning on really using this bag, I thought they were a great idea!

Oh yeah, and I got that thing in the mail that I was telling you guys about... I'll have a post about it soon!
