More finished knits - Bags this time

Emilia had 3 teachers in her reception year, Miss Harries - her main teacher, Mrs Gilbert - the teacher assistant who held a teaching degree and Mrs Shaw who was the supply teacher. I didn't want to give them mugs or sweets so made them each a special bag. This is Mrs Shaw's bag. Made in Anchor Magicline cotton held double. Knit on 5.5mm needles and lined with bright yellow sheeting :) The sparkle you can see is R2 sparkly stuff, single strand. Loosely based on a pattern from 25 bags to knit.
This is Miss Harries' Sophie bag before and after felting, she was a special teacher so I wanted to make something that took a bit longer. I used Noro Kureyon, 3 different skeins and it felted brillinat after 1 go in my frontloader. Lined in dark blue twill.
This is Mrs Gilbert's bag. Anchor Magic again - held double which gives a lovely gradual change between colours. Pattern from Emma King's 25 bags to knit.

What a fab idea for presents. They all looks great. The staff must have been delighted with them.

The girls both look great in their tops. I especailly like the one you made for Maddie, the colours lok fantastic together.
