Ticker Tape Bag

In an effort to stash bust, I used the leftover skein and 3/4 to make myself a little summer bag. I didn't line it, but I won't carry anything too pointy in it anyway and the stitches are tight enough for it to be fine as is.

I winged the pattern (all sc) and basically made a rectangle, attached handles on each side, and then seamed up the sides. Total measurements, without the handle are about 6 1/2" x 5" wide. I think the handles are 4 or 5" rounds I bought ages ago and the pink screamed to be used with this bag.
