Pffew, I finished this bag just in time to take it with me to Berlin. And I'm super happy I did! It is so roomy and all my clothes for a weekend trip fit perfectly, while the two zippered pockets make it easy to find the little things, like necklaces, that I often pack.
It does wrinkle a bit at the top part near the zipper, but there's already three layers of interfacing there! And when it is stuffed to the brim you don't see it anymore :)
I had to handstitch the lining and let me tell you, that is definitely not my favourite thing to do.. It does show a little bit, because at certain points it is not as neat as I had hoped. But I can't be bothered to redo it again.. I might have to at some point, becuase my boyfriend had to find a cable in my bag and I heard something make a stitch-ripping-sound.. Aargh! I did inspect it later but I don't see any tears or loose stitches.
|Quite happy with the lining fabrics!|
Handmade Berlin, which is a yarn and coffee shop in one! How cool is that? Even the guys were quite happy to spend some time there.. I bought some beautiful cotton yarn, which I'm hoping to make into a sweater.
|Can't wait to knit this sweater!|
