I just loved making this bag. I am NO seamstress, but the pattern talks you through putting the zipper in. With a little patience, I did it. I added purchased leather handles instead of the knitted ones. I have read about people using decorative napkin rings for the purse rings to add some flair.
I just love this yarn! It is so soft, I could not stop knitting! I am sure it will feel wonderful against the baby's skin. I am using it for the baby sweater in the infant set from blue sky alpaca. I would recommend that as well.
