Satchel Grande Reviewed by patty will on 2010-11-19 *****
I can't tell you how much I appreciate all the hints the reviewers have given me. I can just about make anything as long as there are directions. I'm pretty sure about adding the cording for added strength but I have no clue on how to line the satchel. Please help and please keep your reviews coming because I love to knit and crochet and you guys are really creative.

This bag looks great. I followed the directions to knit the bag. I added a loop from front to back and a button on the front to close the bag.
After knitting it, it appeared it would sag and stretch so I lined it with a complementary fabric and added a bottom of covered coardboard to provide stiffness.

I made five of these bags,hardest part is lining them,I used cotton cording in the handles they seem to give the bag more stability.I also tacked in the corners to give it more shape

Looove this pattern. I just finished a bag for my mom and plan to make some more.
I added a few extra touches,I created a bottom for it by using balsa wood and wrapping it in fabric then attaching to the inside of the bag. I also made a linning for it, put a snap button on the inside and a decorative button on the outside.

I love this pattern. It's really easy to follow and the Seed stitch looks wonderful. I made mine out of "Barley" and it gave the bag a great textured look. Easy enough for beginners, but experienced knitters will also enjoy it.

Easy to make and put together. Heavy duty, holds a LOT of knitting, gets rave comments!

Satchel Grande Reviewed by karen chervitz on 2009-01-17 *****
This is so beautiful. I made it in gray marble. I lined it with red satin that was a placemat. People are amazed. I love a large purse. It is great for shopping. I have a bad back and have to use lighter purses. The only weight before putting things into this bag are the wooden dowels. I can't wait to make another purse. A fantastic purse for about $20, how fabulous. Fabulous yarn. The wool ease is just wonderful.

This bag is fabulous. Big and roomy and beautiful. I love the seed stich knit with Wool Ease Thick and Quick. Makes the knitting look much fancier than it is. I'm going to line it and use it as an overnighter.

I Love This Bag!! I seem to have gauge issues, so mine came out a little larger, but that's OK with me. I made it in green. I also lined it to prevent excessive stretching.
