Dwindling Stash = A Bag

I don't really have a lot in my stash (what's pictured isn't all of it, but maybe close to a third of much...but enough to provide great entertainment).

I gave this morsbag pattern a try...

...and with some minor adaptations, I really love it. I didn't add the tag, because I had no way of doing that and was sort of in a crunch for time. (It definitely took me longer than 30 minutes...but that's the fun about dawdling, right?!)

I really liked the approach the pattern had to the handles.

And strengthening them was fun, too. I discovered a way to make it look "perfect," without having to pick up and raise the needle. Math pays off.

I sewed a triangle on the corners, because I thought it would be more functional that way (this is one of the changes I made to the pattern).

And it turned out pretty nice, if I say so myself. I just might make more!
