Pattern Description:

I thought outside of the ?BOXEY? for this bag.

A fun spin on the classic round barrel bag silhouette. It?s dimensions are approximately 12? long X 5.5? high X 5.5? deep after felting. Of course, the dimensions will vary a bit based on your knitting style and yarn selections.

The pattern is 8 pages long:
A Shopping list, stitch guides, detailed instructions, photographs and TIPS!
Ways to saving money on the handles or straps, time saving shortcuts, blocking tricks, embellishment ideas, some helpful zipper advice and a fun way to add a touch of whimsy to your Boxey.

You have 2 zipper options for this bag: inside or outside. Its up to you.

As with all of my designs, the pattern gives you the basic instructions to make a perfect Boxey bag. Color selections and other design embellishments are left up to you. I want you to put your personality into my designs. BE FEARLESS!!

You probably think the name for the Boxey bag came from the bag?s construction. If so, you are only partly correct. I am a lifelong fan of both the vintage and modern versions of Battlestar Galactica. That?s right?. I?m GEEKY! Boxey is the name of one of the characters and this bag is my little way of blending the 2 things I love to do: knit and watch sci fi.

It all started when I was pregnant with kid #3. I had been using a Winnie the POO (pun intended) diaper bag for 5 years strait and the thought of lugging it around for another 3 years WAS UNBEARABLE!!! At the same time, I noticed a woman with a cute over sized bag and asked about it. When I found out how it was made, I thought, I can do that. And I did! Then all of my neighbors wanted one.
