of course this bag is $285 by Mimeki. Joan (on Girlfriends) rocks these in every episode! I am trying to make one now but i am trying to be fancy and do a mosstitch and it is taking me forever. I am about to go to the machine or hand knit with chunky yarn on the 15s. it is nothing but two sides and buttonhole handles. you can go in a round to make it quicker or straight stocking knit on the Machine. This is why i want the seed stitcher then i could have my moss stitch bag quicker! Oh and it converts to a quick tote depending on your mood ( websites words not mine).
