Here is a link to my bag project on ravelry.
So here is my Marinke Slump Bag.
Yes - I made this. Can you believe it? To me, it looks so real.
I love the stitch that looks like knitting - a new stitch for me, easy and will be used again.
I love the cord I made to weave through as a drawstring. It's made of six strands of bulky acrylic yarn braided together.
I love that the bag has awesome sturdy handles that are the perfect length and that I made them up and sewed them myself as well.
This was a lot of fun to create. Now I cannot WAIT to use it out in the world.
Hope you enjoy my creation. Sher
One more photo before the drawstring was added so you can see the weaving holes. I created those by crocheting around some metal key ring circles.
