There is nothing like wanting to use an item to motivate you to finish it.
This little black bag I started last year and actually finished knitting earlier this year but put it aside to join together at a later date. I decided I would like to use this bag this coming weekend at Urban Stitches so yesterday I made it my mission to finish it. It really is simply just a knitted front, back and strap with a black button and a bit of elastic. I wanted a simple little bag I could throw over my body to keep my phone and wallet in. After trying it out I think I may have made the strap a bit long as I forgot knitting stretches so I’ve come to the solution that I can always knot the strap half way so the knot will sit on top of my shoulder if needed.
