I learned a very valuable lesson over the last 2 days. I am not ready to go off pattern to make things. I wanted to make a bag to accompany the slippers I made as a gift last week and after scouring Ravelry I couldn't find anything I loved. I liked parts of some but couldn't find a complete bag. So I just started and thought I'd figure it out as I went.
Well, it's a success in that it will carry items. Not so much something that is super pretty to look at or that I would ever even attempt to write a pattern for. Oh well, that's the joy of handmades. Sometimes they are misses.
I hope that you are having a great week so far! Happy Hump Day!
