Recycled Sari Silk Bag


The first of two recycled bags is finished. My first go round with Unbiased pretty much produced an unusable bag. I thought about it for awhile, checked out other Unbiased on Ravelry and decided to seam up the center seam more and then do applied i-cord around the outside edges of the bag.

The i-cord gives the bag a much more substantial and less stretchy feel. I find that this bag is now usable as a bag.

Now to finish up it's recycled plastic bag counterpart in time for Earth Day 2008 as planned!

Excellent! I love the recycled sari silk yarn. Never knit with it, but I adore the look and feel.
