strappy & oh, so colorful


Wow.

Who knew straps could just bring it all together.

This is my Oda Bag.




And after weaving in & snipping about 40 million little ends.....







....I got this super-delightful, colorful carry-all


and


...'Cool! Can you make me one?!' response from our soon-to-be-senior daughter.






Solveig's tutorial is so straightforward -- okay, so I did glean a little help from the kids as to how this all went together. (Puzzles/geometric shapes just freeze me up every time. Think freshman algebra & yes! eyes glazed over when faced with putting a puzzle together....)
.


But now that is all done -- I just simply love it.

I could only say WOW, too! This bag looks like the perfect summer, the colours are perfectly bright and happy and the white makes them shimmer and glimmer like jewels. Now I only hope that you are having much more sun and summer weather than we do and that you could enjoy it on really hot beaming days!

Absolutely beautiful! I love the bright and happy colors you chose. And like you, I'd probably need some help putting it all together. Thank you SO much for sharing!

This turned out absolutely beautiful-well done you! Gotta love weaving in those little ends. :)

Love the colours! The white border really makes them pop!
I don't envy you having to sew in all of those ends.
