FO – Tweed Bag

I am sorry to bore you all to death with yet another one of these bags.

However I cannot stop myself from making this pattern; everytime I turn out those cute pockets I begin visualising yet another lining/outer fabric combo and when I surveyed the moth-eaten pile of ebay-won Harris Tweed left over from the Maudette, I realised that I could cut between the holes and have myself my very own packed-lunch bag.

The tweed, lined with interfacing, gives amazing structure to the bag and the colours are beautiful.

Knitting seems to have taken the bag over; there appear to be two balls of yarn in there rather than the tasty lunch I have prepared today involving lentil burgers and pepper/onion relish…

Tuesday’s numbers:

WW points consumed – 19
£££ spent – £4.95 on train ticket, £1.50 on strong coffee at the Global Cafe later, for Sticks’n’String

Menu:

Sultana and cinnamon ready brek for breakfast, lentil burgers in pitta with pepper salsa for lunch, sweet potato and tomato soup for dinner

    The bag is a gorgeous marriage of comforting tweed and buttony lining. of Using more substantial fabric is a great idea. Have just bought a copy of Emma Brennan’s Making Vintage Bags and Making Vintage Accessories with the ambition of never having to buy a bag again. Will share review in due course.

    I love the idea of recycling suiting into bags, not too surprised to see knitting taking up residence!

    The bag looks lovely – I think spending such a while with your Maudette really made me appreciate the lovely qualities of the tweed. It is such a lovely colour with shade s of blue and grey inside. The lentil burgers look lush too
