The world of Brid has most definitely been invaded by an incessant need to make more and more little make-up bags. I made this particular one as a present for the Mother of the boyfriend. Brownie point moment *cough cough*. Hee Hee. She was rather pleased and even showed it to the Grandmother of the boyfriend who used to knit matching jumpers for all of her flock of kids. Needless to say, when someone as knit-witted as that likes your work your chest definitely has licence to swell a little with pride!
In an earlier post, I tried this bag in a different stitch (Knit one, purl one). However, I have a love affair with moss stitch. I love the way it feels and how it looks. As you can also see, I love love love knitted roses and this colour combination makes me rather happy inside!
I must now formally admit to my addiction and announce that there is another make-up in the pipeline. The obsession does not seem to be waning! Pictures shall be making their presence known soon :)
