I have an old handbag that is falling apart, although it has served me well it is time to get a new one. I was going to buy one but then I found the B4 Bag over at Crafty Bernies well my search for a new bag ended there. Not only will it be a one off, as each one is completely different but it gives me a chance to finally have a go at felting which has been on my to do list for quite some time now. There is a Knitalong where you can see some wonderful examples of this great pattern.
I am knitting mine in Bendigo Rustic 12ply, green opal, more blue than green really. This is one of my all time favourite wools and has been featuring in quite a few of my projects lately. I am up to the bead section which has sent me off on a search for a suitable sized crochet hook, amazingly enough I had enough beads, all 66 of them, in my bead collection. I will be scouring the op shops and craft shops looking for some buttons to add the finishing touch to this bag.
