Vintage knitting bags as normal handbags
I have a new addiction - buying cheap vintage knitting bags on ebay and using them as normal handbags.
Most are in perfect condition. What I look is the retro look of them.
Have attached pics of some past and possible purchases.
Anyone else tried this?

I like them, and I have also seen a lot of new bags with wooden handles. they are very easy to do yourself too

What a lovely idea I have the one with the cats that says 'Knitting Bag'.
It was passed on to me by my Mum, but I keep my knitting in it. I love the other one with cats on too.
