I had hoped to sell a lot of items on etsy during the holidays, but I didn’t have a lot of time to make things to stock my store. Fortunately, it was because I had custom orders! One of my favorites was a matching messenger bag and scarf. The sweater was huge and superwash wool. It didn’t felt at all, so I had a lot of fabric, but I had to be careful it didn’t unravel while sewing.

Most of my bags are one of a kinds, depending on the shape and design of the sweater. I’m thinking of writing up a standard pattern, though. I really like how this one turned out.

I’m also loving my scarves. I made a bunch for Christmas presents this year. I hope to have a tutorial for these up on the blog soon. They are so warm!

    This is so nice! All of your work is so pristine around the edges and everything–no wonder you are getting “contracted” for custom work! :)
    See you tomorrow!
    PS–I will try to remember that king arthur flour that I told you about and bring it to knitting group!

    Sounds like it was hard to work with this fabric, but it turned out so nice!
    Like the idea of a set. Very pretty color!
