I was just in my LYS Woolen Treasures and ordered 8 skeins of Cascade 220 in color number 2404. It's about 1/4 of the way down the page. I'll be making this.
Any way, as I'm cruising around the shop I spied this little gem: a shop sample just hanging out quietly saying look at me. This is a knitted purse, but I love the handle. Can you figure out what it is? That's right -- it is a belt! You could use this idea on any type of bag, not just a knitted or crocheted bag.
Now I just need to get busy making bags. I have a lot of old belts just hiding in my closet. What a great way to de-clutter something I am not using.
