booga bag 2

Here is the second booga bag I have made. You can see my first one here, please pardon the blurry photo. I used the pattern from Blacksheepbags. The best thing is that it is free and very straight forward.
I really like the earthy tones of this bag. I used Noro Kureyon and Berroco Peruvia. They are both lovely yarns that are very easy to work with!
I made one small change to this bag and knit the bottom with two strands of wool. I thought it might be a little more sturdy that way! You know, hold the wallet, keys and other things we throw into our bags without stretching!

This was my second of two Pay it Forwards from back in January! The idea being that you make something handmade for a fellow blogger and/or friend and then they get to make something handmade for their fellow bloggers and/or friends. So you are keeping a "kindness or bit of love" moving forward to others.
Now I am all done! It was fun! I learned how to felt and tried a new pattern. Both good things!
This bag made its way over to Michele at Laundromat. Stop on over and check it out!

it's so fun blessing others with surprises, especially ones you've made with your own hands.

Wow, it turned out great! I have been wanting to do one of these for quite some time... I have felted sweaters I bought at goodwill but haven't felted anything I've made yet.
