Work-in-Progress Wednesday 5


This WIP will be a bag for EJ later today (fingers crossed).  She started dance class again this Fall, but this time around she needs to take ballet and tap shoes each week.  Between her shoes and things to keep Livie busy during class, it's getting a little crowded in my purse.  I decided to add a dance bag to her Christmas list, so I started looking for a cute one and just didn't find one I liked (or thought she would like).  I also realized that Christmas is a lot of weeks away when you're dealing with dance shoes and snow clothes.

So I decided to make one for in the meantime (although if it turns out, it might be for good).  I'm using this pattern from Lion Brand Yarn but am using a much lighter yarn (worsted #4), so am adding some rows as I go to make the bag large enough for EJ.

And now back to work for me...class starts in a few hours and EJ is set on taking this bag with her!

That looks great. I love the colour and how it's spiralling as it gets bigger. Should be perfect for dance shoes :)

Jackie said...

What a great idea! I'm excited to see that later today :) And purple nonetheless...I might know another dancer that might be jealous of that!!

I like the spiral in that pattern. and a nice color also! I can't wait to see the bag as it progresses.

Not finding what you want in a store, then going home to make it because you can = Best. Thing. Ever. That color is spectacular -- she's going to love it!

nice job on the bag! i love that color. :o)

thanks so much for stopping by & commenting & i didn't know if you would see my reply so i thought i would comment back her. the bobble stitch is really easy & this pattern is pretty easy as well. all it basically is, is a 3dc cluster & then you do a sc in the next stitch so it makes that little bubble. it's so easy but when you do the next line it's hard not to grab some of the yarn from the bobble in the previous row, it's just a little tricky but once you get the hang of it it's super easy. sorry for the long comment. have a great wipw

On way to school EJ said "Isn't it crazy that Mom is making a bag for me!" She is definitely excited!
