Kelly Green Cabled Hobo Bag.....By Patty

Today I completed my Kelly Green Cabled Hobo Bag. I found the pattern on Delicious Stitches Blog last month and decided that I would complete it using Vanna's Choice Worsted Yarn in Kelly Green for two reasons: 1.) I had a few balls of it on hand and 2.) I love GREEN!! as you probably already knew. If you would like to create this bag, you can find the pattern here:

This morning I worked to complete the strap which was the last step of the bag. I finished the bag itself on Thursday and I glued a forest green liner with a leaf pattern into it. I also made a cell phone pocket and glued it to the liner. Once the glue dried (I used Aleen's Quick Dry Tacky Glue), I was ready to sew the strap onto the bag. As you can see, it turned out to be very cute!!

I will definitely use this bag for everyday use and I am considering making one in several different colors. We'll see. For now, I am casting on a Lillian Tank Top which I also coincidentally found on Delicious Stitches. If you are interested, the pattern for this gorgeous top can be found here:
I hope you like this bag as much as I do!
