Birthday Booga Bag

Birthday Booga Bag

A gift for my sister's 31st birthday. Used Noro Kureyon in colour #130. First time using Kureyon. DH lined it with a pink & orange poly-cotton fabric remnant, using the box I blocked the bag with to shape the lining. He even put pockets all around the inside, clever man. Not the easiest bag to line because of the way the strap threads through the top of the bag. DH put buttonholes in the lining to accommodate that.

The straps still don't move through holes very smoothly but that will probably improve with time. I like the way the straps pull the bag shut when you lift it. I wish the Kureyon hadn't shrunk so much. The bag is smaller that I was expecting it to be and truthfully not the greatest value. Love those stripes, though! It was a fun project.
