Just thought I'd post a photo of my Tea Cosy Bag.
I wondered if I could make a bag from the Easy Ripple Tea Cosy pattern by enlarging it, turning it upside down & adding a strap, so here it is -
I made it in one piece, joining every round, but turning & going back each round to keep the ridged pattern.
If I made another I would probably make it a little larger again but make it in 2 pieces, so I could give the bag side seams to prevent it stretching. It's unlined here for the photo but I intend on lining it with fabric so it doesn't stretch. The buttons here are just temporary until I find some others. They are quite nice actually, they have little cherubs inside a round window, with hearts around the outside, so If I can't find anything I like better, they can stay lol - Jenny.
