I finished the Lazy Girl Designs Margo Bag this weekend.  The only change I made to the pattern was to increase the length of the handles by a couple of inches.  It turned out to be a little smaller than I had wanted, but it’s  still a great bag for knit & crochet works-in-progress  (WIP).

The fabric was purchased from Laurie  Wisbrun, a local designer.   Her Donkeys in Wellie Rainboots fabrics are available in her Scarlet Fig Etsy shop, and I’m very glad she still had some available when I found the right bag pattern.

To highlight the colors used in the Donkeys (front) and Wellies (inside pockets) fabrics,  I chose a chartreuse for the interior lining,  magenta for the exterior pocket lining (behind the donkeys), and blue for the interior pocket lining and bag bottom.   It’s a cheerful little bag, with a ton of pockets  to hold hooks, needles, and other tools.  The inset zipper is a great feature – it should help keep the contents of my bag intact (I’m quite skilled at tumping bags over in the car).

Once I became entranced with the wellies fabrics I ordered  a bit more so  I’ll have some on hand to make a few little notions bags and knitting needle / crochet hook rolls.  In the meantime, I have a fabulous long-handled bag to hold my works-in-progress.
