Details, Details!

Project Specs

Siren Makeup Bag
Yarn: Moda Dea Cache in Siren
Pattern: This is my first original knitting design. I think it turned out fairly well for a first go, but there are things about this bag that I would tweak.
Overall impressions: The Cache yarn is very nice. I wouldn't use it for anything worn close to the skin, because due to it's thin and thick, bulky texture it is a bit rough. This makes it perfect for bags, purses, and other accessories, however. I have about a third of a skein left, which I bought at Village Crafts with a 40% off coupon. Button and all this bag cost less than $4.50 to make. Not bad.
Despite the small adjustments that need to be made to the bag, such as the width of the flap after seaming, I like the bag and it's fun to take along in my purse. I've already had a few compliments. These bags may pop up again for Christmas gifts and the like, reincarnated with different yarns, needles, and buttons.
