woo hoo! After waiting several months, my cousin, L, will finally receive the ladybug bag that she requested! I really felt good once I finished the bag ... even though she knows how ADD I am, I felt guilty working on anything else until it was done.

but since I don't use a pattern, I have to work on it when "I feel inspired" ... I am not trying to be lofty or flippant... but I do have to enjoy what I am working on or it feels like drudgery... lol. Sometimes I run into a structural issue and have to stop and "think it out"; and sometimes I get an idea for another project that I "must go ahead and start - so I won't forget it!"

Poor SugarDaddy, I don't think he understands why I must have 52 (hopefully that's an exaggeration!) projects going on at once!

This bag can be used as a shoulder bag or as a backpack. It is made of Acrylic yarn for ease of care and durability. (Hobby Lobby's "I Love That Yarn!") (i really do love that yarn... it's not just the brand...lol)

The body of the bag is loomknit, the embellishments are crochet and spool knit & embroidered, and flap enclosure is hand-woven on my vintage Weave-It loom.

I will be sending this bag, the mini-ladybug backpack & the beret (in previous posts ... scroll down to see) to my cuz tomorrow.

I sure hope that she likes them!
