my new bag.....

I am pleased to be able to share with you

my new bag :)

This is the second 'seaside tote' I have made. This one is made using 1 strand of nettle & 2 strands of cotton held together. I was really keen to try using nettle and was pleased with how my bag turned out. I lined the bag with pure linen fabric and added leather handles and a magnetic closing flap. I feel so proud to use it :)

Pattern for Seaside Tote can be found on

Nettle Yarn can be purchased from Spunkyarn on etsy :)

It is the last day of school holidays tomorrow, it's been a fun and very busy time....
and I will miss having the kids around....but I guess I will be happy to get back into the normal weekly routine once more ;)

Have a happy week
~ Gillian :)
