Debbie Bliss Lined Bag

The second of my three projects from the Debbie Bliss Simple Living book is done.

I liked Debbie’s idea of knitting a lined bag for the bathroom; it’s huge and will hold quite a lot. For my pictures, I draped one of my linen hand towels I made and shared with you last week.

The same seashell fabric I used for lining my slippers project from the same book worked for this bag, too. While Debbie used regular round buttons on her handles, I opted for golden ones, a starfish on one side and a fish on the other. The straps are sewn to the sides of the bag so the buttons are merely decorative.

The bag is knit using two strands of cotton for each stitch. Around the near middle of the bag is where I forgot about doing the moss stitch. I’m okay with that as it actually looks kind of interesting to me.

Haha! A very happy accident! It looks like it was meant to be and it adds a stripe. Very pretty June!

A knitted bag looks lovely in the bathroom filled with bath products. It looks so natural and fresh. Love how you have styled it in the photo.
