I am really excited to announce my latest design the Beatrice Evening Bag
|the small bag|
This is my first ever kit design and I am so pleased with it.
Its a very simple but pretty design that knits up very quickly – ideal for making Christmas gifts or making yourself a bag for all those Christmas parties.
The bag comes in two sizes small (or I travel light) or large (or what do you mean I couldn’t possible go out without it!) Small measures 10 x 20 cm (4″ x 8″), large measures 14 x 30 cm ( 5 1/2″ x 12″)
|the large bag|
The kit is exclusively available from magpielly.co.uk. It costs £11.99 which includes the a digital copy of the pattern, yarn and ribbon. The kit makes either one large bag or two small bags.
That means 2 Christmas presents could be sorted in one evening for just £11.99!
The bag was inspired by necessity: I needed a pretty bag to take to a formal do so I dreamt this up. The interplay of stocking stitch and reverse stocking stitch with just a touch of lace was inspired by a vintage clutch of my grandmother that I have long admired.
Because the bag was designed for practical reasons it is a bag that really works for its purpose. The measurements were taken to allow all my essentials to fit in the smaller bag or I can hold a bit more in the larger bag. It is knit at a tight gauge (on 6mm needles) so that there is no need to line the bag yet my lipstick and coins still won’t slide out. The ribbon handles are pretty and functional and mean there is no need to seam. What more could you want?!
The kit is available in Aubergine (as pictured) , Spice or Jade
Or, pick the special order kit option to choose any other colour from the very extensive Lamb’s Pride Bulky range – I dare anyone to have an evening dress they can’t match to one of these colours!
