Something else for me


I took wool left over from the scarf making marathon of last winter and cut it into squares.


I sewed it up with a pale pink cotton lining and some flannel as an interlining.


Added some handles and...ta da!  My new bag.


The other side is different, but uses some of the same fabrics.  Greens, black, browns, pinks and some gray - I think it'll go with just about anything.  It looks great with my Juliet.


My favorite part is the inside pocket.  I adore that ribbon.

I love the pocket too! Great bag.

i adore the whole thing.
everytime you look inside ... you will smile.
that's fun.


I am a sucker for pale pink and this is a real beauty!! Nice work.

Wow it looks absolutely lovely!


how great is that? lovely, just lovely!


What a great bag for Fall! So nice that you find the time to make things just for you! I need to find such time! Your Juliet is just beautiful too! I agree completely...that bag will go with it and most likely with just about anything you pair it up to! I love that little ribbon detail too...I always forget to add those tiny little touches at times.


A fall bag! Wonderful! And, yes it will go perfectly with Juliet.

It's a beautiful bag, Erin. I love how your repurposed all of those scraps. You have now given me justification for never getting rid of them.


gorgeous!!! xoxo


Too cute! I love it!


Oh my! That's lovely, Erin. Collecting random bits of wool just moved to the top of my to-do list.


OK, can i tell you how much i LOVE it??? i bought a TON of wool at our church sale....i want to make this! i am kicking myself for the wools i left behind!
Such a great bag!!


What a GREAT bag!


What a beautiful bag! The color scheme really reminds me of a Coach bag that I saw last year. Except this one was probably cheaper to make and way cooler because you made it. :)


I ADORE this! Wow! It's not complicated, but it's perfect. I LOVE it.

It's beautiful!! The colours are just great and I love the lining!! Most delicious!!

very nice, erin. it looks great! I like the touches of pink in the mix.


i love the bag and selfish sewing is ever so rewarding!


I cut out a bag for me ages ago and haven't been back to sew it up. You've inspired me to pull it out and get on with it! Lovely bag and cute ribbon!

Mary Jane

Oh, how pretty! I love the pink/rose wools you used! I hope you don't mind but I think I'm going to start collecting some wools to make a bag like yours. I think I know some college age girls in my family who would love to have a bag like this, and me too! Thrift store here I come! :)


I LOVE it!!!
