I truly achieved something this week: I sewed a lining in a bag! Usually, this is something I need a little help with (and okay, I did get some help) but I sewed it in without a watchful eye hovering over my shoulder. And the best part: it looks amazing! I used Kaffe Fasset fabric for the lining, which is one of the most awesome looking fabrics out there.
And with the lining done, all my Noro bag needed was some embellishments and a pair of handles, meaning that it’s finished!
Pattern: 24 Regular crochet squares crocheted together
Hook size: 4mm
Yarn: Noro Silk Garden Lite, about 3 skeins in total (but 5 were used to get the best colour palette)
Time: About a month from start to finish
Happiness level: In love
This bag is just so special. I got the embellishments from different stores and locations, so for me it already has that traveler-vibe going on. There’s a big feather on it with a raw crystal gemstone attached to it using hemp rope. There’s also some beads and a special feather charm. I used 5 different skeins of Noro to crochet the squares. I got between 7-10 squares from each skein, and then I selected the most groovy squares to be part of the final 24 that I needed to make the bag.
The lining ofcourse was made using Kaffe Fasset fabric; if you’ve never heard of him I recommend you go and Google him right now – he is one of my biggest colour inspirations! The handles are brown leather, and they are very very comfortable. The bag closes with a yarn loop around a big glazed bamboo button. This bag is about 14 inches wide and long.
I’ve said it before but I will say it again. Noro, you make the world go round ♥
