Bag again...!

....with a finished project that has been a while in the making!
The amazing vibrantly colourful wool was mentioned as far back as here and here

 It all started with a granny square....

transformed into a bag

with a red half trebled inner, some back loop ridges, and one row of Sherlock stitch at the top

...a handle of simple chains sewn onto the inside..

and a totally stash busting back using lots of fairly short ends in combinations of ones and twos
...with a continuity thread of red

 It was during the composition of the colourful back that Mr RW suggested I might like to keep the bag for myself!...with no hesitation I jumped at the chance...and put it to one side to finish the Christmas makes...
so with Spring in the air the ends have been sewn in and handle attached.
99g of yarn well and truly busted,
 and I love it!!

We are off to the supermarket together today....hopefully the first of many outings!

great bag - love the yarn on the front and the idea of using ends for the back.

Sometimes the stashbusting projects are the most satifying. Your bag is very pretty.
