Playing With Fabric: Part Deux...

I enjoyed making the little iPod cover/change purse (still undecided), that I thought I'd make another sock knitting project bag.
I'm so glad I've actually learned how to line something. This bag is so me. And so spring. It's just one of those combos that instantly makes you happy.

I thought that some pretty pink ribbon would finish this tote off nicely. I'm so pleased with how it turned out. I also am totally in love with the turned over top. It adds that bit of extra girliness that I love.
It's funny, when I made the unlined ones a couple of months ago, I only ever finished two, and I gave both of them away. Luckily, I still had the awesome original that Julie made me in the Knit Sock Kit Swap last year. I still love that original one. I don't know what I'd do without it. It is nice to have an extra one though.

...which reminds me, I need to post the pictures I took of the bag I won from you - sorry about that...

Beautiful Spring bag. Looks like you'll have lots of uses for it.

Love the pink and green! Spring in Vancouver is making everything look so green and alive and I guess this is seeping into everyone's crafts.

That's a very nice tote bag - it will be great for carrying your socks knitting with you. It's so great to be able to sew (which I can't). Thanks for your lovely comments on my socks.
