I'm working on the Coney Island bag and while my hexagon measures 5 inches at the largest part, it is ruffley.  It doesn't lay flat.  I followed the pattern exactly as far as i can figure out.   Has this happened to anyone who has made this bag?  I love the bag, by the way, thanks.

Has anyone made the Sow's ear coin purse?  I am to the finishing part with the icords, and I just don't understand how it goes together!??  Are there more pictures available or more instructions?  I'm stuck - if anyone can help, I'd appreciate it!

Thanks - Denise

You guys ROCK and I love the Pyramid bag as others have also. I am looking forward to making it. I really thank you for the "free" patterns that you provide for all of us. Thank you very much.

How about some more felted patterns, like slippers? maybe?

Knitting is a part of my life that just keeps getting better and better. :)

I love the pyramid project bag.  It's interesting and fun and will be great for carrying some of the many really small projects I make.  Thanks for giving the pattern free through Knitting Daily.  Ann Kelley
