FALL FELTED BAG SENT

FALL FELTED BAG PARTNER 'S CAMERA NOT WORKING SO I AM POSTING A PICTURE FOR HER. THIS IS THE BAG I SENT TO JENEAN. SORRY THE PICTURE IS SO DARK. THE YARN IS FROM KNIT PICKS AND THE COLOR IS "CAPE COD" EASY CHOICE FOR ME!
I HAD SOME TROUBLE DECIDING ON THE HANDLES. I RECEIVED THE PATTERN FROM JUNE WHO MADE ME THIS SAME BAG FOR ANOTHER EXCHANGE. SHE MADE MINE RED WITH BLACK TRIM AND WITH PRETTY BLACK HANDLES AND LINED IT WITH BEAUTIFUL RED FABRIC. I TRIED BAMBOO HANDLES BUT THEY DIDN'T LOOK RIGHT AND I DIDN'T WANT KNITTED ONES THIS TIME SO USED DRAPERY CORDING. WORKED OUT WELL. THE LINING FABRIC REMINDED ME OF THE BEACH SO SINCE THE YARN WAS CALLED CAPE COD I THOUGHT IT WOULD WORK.
THIS IS A PICTURE OF A BEAUTIFUL NEW ENGLAND MAPLE TREE IN FULL AUTUMN COLOR! JUST THOUGHT THOSE OF YOU WHO ARE MISSING THE NEW ENGLAND FALL COLORS WOULD ENJOY!
I PROMISE TO POST SOME WIP TOMORROW!

That is a cool bag. I love it!!! Thank you for the nice comments on my page. I hope there are still going to be exchanges. A few bad apples spoil the bunch. So sad. I miss the fall colors. Our trees did not turn a pretty color this year.
