Hand knit fabric strip handbag Hand knit fabric strip handbag

Just recently did I start knitting with fabric strips and what fun.  Several ways to make fabric strips, I prefer to pink mine then fold in half, which gives handbag extra body.  On this cutie, I first knitted the base, then worked on half the bag at a time...meaning knitted front half and one side first, then knitted back side and last half.  Used fabric strips to tie edges together.  Plastic canvas base for added support.  Lined in cotton.  Handle is length of jute with wooden beads placed at random.
