Handles - now with bags


A tiny little splash of daylight (not even sun, just light) at mid-day today: I rushed around with chairs, camera and wobbly tripod to snatch these shots of my new bags. It's been months now that I've been fiddling around with possible designs, yet these are pretty much the same as the knitted bags I made a long time ago!


I still need to work out some things, like an inside pocket, and possibly elastic inserted in the casing to hold the gathers a little more tightly, but I'm happy with the general shape and function. And the possibilities!

They look lovely. And the last one, the detail of the fabric (i don't know the name of that) inside the handle is superb!!!

love the bags! The fact that you've printed the fabric yourself makes them that much more special!

I love the prints-on-prints, like in the top photo, and the pillowcases you posted a while back with the flowers and flies.

I just love your prints in general :)
