Pattern Details

The Portland Plaid City Bag is a fun, updated take on a traditional plaid handbag with a modern shape. Random horizontal stripes and random vertical stripes create an unexpected plaid pattern. Use your own creativity to develop a unique plaid pattern or make the bag as pictured using the suggested pattern. If you like a more traditional plaid, make both the horizontal and vertical stripes in a uniform repeating pattern. You could also make it all one color, or with just horizontal stripes. There are unlimited possibilities for making this bag uniquely your own! This bag has only on seams to sew and you only knit with one color of yarn at a time!! Instructions for felting the bag in a washing machine as well as a tutorial for making a fabric lining for the bag are also included.
