Lil' Buddy

What: Buddy Bag from Anny Purls.
Yarn: Mostly worsted weight ella rae in 100% wool.
Needles: size 5 for the bag, 3 for the I-Cord and decorative bits.
Modifications: None. Can you believe it? I was tempted to put the bird on the branch and call it good, but I made the nest anyway.

38" of I-Cord didn't take me quite as long as I thought it would. However, it still wasn't a ton of fun to slog through. The I-Cord works as the backpack straps, you start at the lower left side, bring it up through one of the picot holes, thread it through 1 1/2 times around the top and end up in the lower right corner. I'm lining it with a pretty purple lilac fabric.

very cute and I think worth the 3+ ft of I-cord. How are you going to get it out of the house? :)

OMG, SQUEEEEE! I wonder if I could stuff Jabba in there and just tote her around that way for a while?

So. Just *how long* does it take to make three. feet. of I-cord?
