… a.k.a the Very Very Easy Bag…
which I present to you in its open state:
And here we see the specimen in its fully assembled form, supported gracefully by knob. (note: one must pull these here side-strings and fix them in a bow-form to achieve this effect) Observe the heft.
A birds eye view reveals an effortless cradling of yarn and yarn-related affairs.
Please do notice the layered foldings and un-foldings as well as an impromptu button assemblage with revealed threading.
Disclaimer: a guest (or ghost?) writer (i.e. Gabe) is responsible for the above introduction of the VVEB. What I wanted to add, in a more down-to-earth style:
Pattern: VVEB, tutorial found on this French blog. I think she got it from Froufrou et Capucine, whose link is in my sidebar. (Warning: it’s in French but there are photos so the process is pretty self-explanatory.)
Level of Difficulty: duh
Fabric used: Michael Miller’s Dandy Damask and Amy Butler’s Belle (from remnant bin at Michael Levine’s and Ebay, respectively)
Time spent making it: um…
Time that should have been spent making it: about an hour
My thoughts on this project: easiest possible pattern for a bag. I wouldn’t recommend using this as a purse, as small objects would easily escape, but my intended use was a simple knitting bag, and it works well for that. I added the inside pocket and put in a big button so that it would stay closed. I could imagine this working as a diaper bag — you could use the flat state as a changing mat. Overall: perfect when you just have to sew something but don’t want to be aggravated.
