So we come to the last of this series of blogposts on working the BYOB Market Bag and the new pattern is ready!
Doesn't this look different from the original BYOB 2.0 pattern? Here's where we started with the BYOB 2.0 bags:
These are striped bags worked with a deep base, a relatively narrow central section and grip handles to hold in your hand or carry over your arm. And now here is the new BYOB Market Bag — a very stylish shoulder bag worked in a single colour:
I think you'll agree — it almost looks like a different bag. So perhaps this will inspire you to try other variations to make a unique bag for yourself.
You could work a version of the BYOB 2.0 bag in the Med or Lrg size for a brilliant beach bag, or the XS size would make great little gift bags for your next party, for example worked in orange for your next Halloween "Trick or Treating". Or you could colour-code your BYOB Market Bags so you always use the same colour for different produce!
If you delve into the deep history in this blog you'll find other variations I have suggested for these bags including the version above on the right which uses a Fibonacci sequence for the stripes.
See the post dated 12 Aug 2009 "Bags of Bags" for lots of ideas, such as these.
I hope you enjoy the new bag pattern. Let me know if you spot any errors or want to make any further suggestions — always pleased to hear from everyone. I love making bags (can you tell!) so please visit my website from time to time to see any new ones that I have added.
See you next time.
