Dutch Knitting Bag 2


Remember the Dutch Knitting Bag I wrote about a few weeks ago? Well, I thought it was about time to finish it! So the last few days I did some embroidery:

After that I sewed the panels

Did some quilting

And after sewing everything together; TADAAAAAAAAAAAAH

   On the bottom of the bag I made a divider to prevent the yarn from ravelling.

Well, I know what I am going to do tonight; sit on the couch with the jacket I’m knitting.

Before I forget; there was surprise-mail for me today. For the ‘Friendship Afghan’ I got two beautiful squares from Linda from Minnesota USA.

Picture 020One knitted and one crocheted. Both in beautiful warm wool. I loooooove them, even more because Linda used just the perfect colours.

Wat een super leuke tas Do. Echt heel knap gemaakt. Zelf kan ik helemaal niet met een naaimachine overweg. Daarom heb ik extra bewondering voor mensen die dat wel kunnen.

Wat is je tas heel erg mooi geworden! Zo vrolijk en ja, de tulpen horen bij een Dutch bag! Ook zo handig met die vakjes. Chapeau!
