Christmas Bag




This is an unexpected Christmas bag . I had two pieces I machine knitted to make pillow casings.
Then I decided I can make a bag out of them.So I crocheted a green strip to sew around it with a shoulder strap
It still needs a lining and a lining for the strap so it doesn't stretch. It also needs three big buttons in front and maybe a felt Santa or snow man in the front for decoration. So far, I like what I did.

I might add some pockets to the lining for glasses, keys, phone, and calculator, maybe even a mirror and a pocket for aspirin or vitamins.lol

Something like this, since it's red and white, can also easily be turned into a
good Red Cross bag with many different bandages, peroxide, iodine, hot and cold pads, sun screen, etc....

It's also good to use for over night sleep overs, as a book bag, a lap top carrier, or as a present bag.
Instead of paper, you give something, in something else, a person can use.

So many things can be made out of squares. Toilet paper holders for Christmas with a little ribbon and lace around would definitely enrich any ones' powder room.

Machine knitting is fun and now using felt to make pictures on pieces you knit,
can make you nice projects all around.

Well........who said life is boring eh? lol

Have a great day everyone.:)
