Lucy Bag

This pattern is designed by TWO OLD BAGS

3 skeins of LAMB'S PRIDE WORSTED (85 % wool / 15 % mohair) Color # M181 Prairie Fire
1 skein South West Trading Company MELODY (65 % rayon / 35 % nylon) Color # 516 Serendipity
For the bag bottom and handle, I used single strand of Lamb's Pride by itself.
For the rest of the bag, I used single strand of the Lamb's Pride and single strand of the Melody held together.
The pattern is VERY contagious and the bag turns out terrific! I especially like the handle design.
I highly recommend the MELODY - one skein is a big 400 yds. so you get alot
of mileage from it.
TIP: With this yarn SHAVE THE BAG after felting, the novelty yarn shows up better and it isn't as fuzzy.
