me, Mavis

I knit. I garden. I co-manage an eclectic shop. I sometimes work in real estate. I sometimes swing a hammer. I always volunteer in my community. I live in an old house with my nice family of one husband and three beastly cats. I have great friends. These are the things that matter to me, Mavis.

"Doggie Bag" becomes a Sweet Purse

I was able to spend a little time at my sewing machine this morning in order to make up a lining for a knit project that I finished a few weeks ago. This is the inside of the bag:

The fabric is from my stash and of unknown origin ... but it's a soft flannel and cute print which I think looks very good with the yarn. Here's the outside:

The yarn is a really great beaded cotton and rayon that I bought on impulse a year or so ago.

I found the pattern by chance a while back, as a freebie by a nice blogger. It was designed as a dog poop bag (how chic!) but I thought is would make a nice small handbag. You can find the pattern here.
