I loved the bag that I made and posted about previously, but something just wasn’t right. The handle seemed too awkward. The pattern had a leather handle, but when I looked it up, it was about $40. Since I had already spent so much money on the yarn, I didn’t want to spend that much on the handle as well. I chose a handle from a set of 2, but it looked too weird so my mom suggested this type of handle. I thought the messenger style purse looked right for this bag, and after sewing it on last weekend, I am totally loving the bag. It feels much more comfortable and doesn’t look awkward anymore. The bright color adds to the pastels in the yarn, and I absolutely love it now!
