Design Wars Luster Sheen Battle | The Scalloped Messenger Bag

Introducting my Design Wars Luster Sheen Battle!

Luster Sheen yarn

It’s Design Wars time again for me and I’m trying to remind myself why in the world I picked a size 2 weight yarn like Red Heart’s Luster Sheen! Oh YEAH… to “challenge myself”… Well the challenge was accepted and I’m so excited about the end result! (Shewww!) I must admit my comfort zone is a WW on up…I love quick projects! However, there is something so satisfying in finally finishing a project you’ve been working on for a while and now enjoying (and showing off!) your new piece!

That’s how I feel about my new Scalloped Love Bag!

I used the colors Lime & Natural. I love a good neutral with a splash of color. This bag is comfortable and stylish and everyone is going to be shocked that you made it! BONUS…it doesn’t have to be lined! We all know I don’t sew. :)

I designed this bag specifically for the Luster Sheen line. It’s a size 2 weight (sport weight) yarn and I used a G hook. The yarn has a strong almost cord-like feel to it so I figured with the perfect stitch combination it would make a killer bag!

 This specific yarn provides the perfect amount of strength and stretch for this messenger bag. You will love it…I promise! It’s definitely my new favorite bag. In the words of my sister…”I’m slightly obsessed with this!” I hope you will be too. :)
