Bobbles, bobbles, everywhere!

It is finished and I couldn't be more happy. I think it turned out great. Not just the bag, but the whole experience. It was time consuming but it was also easy. The time was lots of small increments that you can fit into a day as well, so this is a great project if you don't have a lot of time at once, but little bits here and there. That is perfect for all the bobbles!

I used a really stiff interfacing that I found at our local quilting store. It is actually quite thick and she said you can use it for the inside of basball hat brims and that sort of thing. It was not fuseable so I used a double sided fusing to secure the fabric with the interfacing, and then set that bag within a bag into my felted purse. This made a world of difference! The bag is so top heavy that you really need to go with a nice lining to make it stand up.

I will add that in one day of using it, the comments are overwhelming! It is a real eye catching bag, and Jimmy Beans will have it as a kit soon. This is nice so you won't have to buy all those skeins for colors, you can simply buy a kit.

The bobble bag is fabulous! You should be so proud of yourself. You have inspired me to start knitting all those little bobbles.

What a beautiful bobble bag! I found your blog because I'm getting ready to start my own bobble bag and want to know if anyone has had problems with the colors bleeding. Did you? I'd love to know what yarn you used and what you used to block it on. Gorgeous work!
