introducing stella!


stella.jpg, originally uploaded by tinkerellen.

i took a cue from sarah over at plucky knitter and named one of my first creations. this is stella. i think she's a stella. it's a very retro 20's feeling fabric but with simplicity and a little bit of funk.

i still have to finish her other handle since i realized far too late that i had done a horrible job on the handles and couldn't fit the stinking thing back under the machine to fix them, so i had to come up with a by-hand solution. {maybe i should invest in some stinking patterns?!}

it was a difficult bag to say the least but i love her and can't wait to break her in this weekend. um. you know what i mean.

I think you should consider carrying this down the aisle in Nigeria. It would look beautiful filled with African violets!

my grandma's name was Stella. :( Way to make me cry. I think you should give it to me so I can feel a little better.
