The Ave. Bag


What do ya do when your afghan square goes wrong (when it's more of an oblong than a square). You don't frog it - You make something else out of it. :o) Afghan square design - Avenues by Jenny Stark.

I used my new Embellish-Knit machine to make the bag handle and flower. That's the pretty, pink yarn that comes with the machine. And, I got out the sewing machine and made a lining with a zipper for it.

Beautiful bag!! What a wonderful example of taking a "lemon" and making "exquisite lemonade."
