Of course, browsing around the internet cuts into the time to actually make the patterns, but what's a person to do??
I call Kay The Enabler sometimes. Perhaps she feels the same about me. We are always passing links back and forth and I know I found this new bag through a link she sent.
The minute I spotted it, I knew I wanted to try it.
This is the Noriko Handbag; a clever little freebie from Lazy Girl Designs.
[celebrating lazy since 1997]
Lazy Girl. Don't you love that name? I do.
But I don't think there is anything lazy about her. I've made lots of little bags, some from free patterns and some from ones I purchased, and these directions were top notch. Besides being well written and full of helpful (and exact) illustrations, it contained many little steps that added greatly to the looks and functionality of the bag.
I loved the bright hibiscus fabric that I rushed right out to my LQS for the moment I printed the pattern. Of course there was nothing just right already in the house! Can you relate?
Conveniently it is just the right size for a small, portable knitting project.
