Knitting Fabric Strips - A Cabana Bag

If you have followed my blog, then you know that I recently completed a rag rug by crocheting strips of upcycled fabrics. After that project, I began crocheting baskets too. My latest crafting adventure is making a knit bag with strips of fabric. I hadn't knit in many years, bu tit brings back fond childhood memories. My cousin, who lived across the street from my grandmother taught me how to knit after school. It is fun to pick up a pair of knitting needles again. After the knit sections are complete, I will sew a liner and handles. Check back in to see the completed project!
