CAUTION- Shield your eyes! Protect small children! When I showed this to a critical 8 yr old, she screamed "oh yuck! Get that thing away from me- I don't want my eyes to see it! It is so ugly!" I thought a new bag to hold my knitting would be fun since I've been able to knit again. I used this pattern because I had some cotton webbing on hand and I was too lazy to make real handles and turn them. The top part to insert the handles works great with webbing! I may add a snap in the center. It also has a couple of pockets inside.
