Days 2 and 3 of the bag challenge

Here’s days two and three of the ‘a different bag every day’ challenge. Just to clarify, I’m only doing this for a week, I just can’t keep up the daily photo taking any longer, and challenges are better time limited anyway. Thanks to the Pale and Pallor Princess for highlighting the fact that I never gave a time limit for this challenge!

Anyway, the day 2 bag I made myself, very early on in my knitting career. It’s knitted then felted, it was one of those kits you can buy, but I added the start brooch, which I designed myself for interest.

The bag from day 3 is from a charity shop, it was really cheap! Like £3 or something. I haven’t worn it very often though, I don’t know why, because it’s lovely. Maybe it’s one of those things where something is delicate and you want to protect it from wear and tear. Which I don’t subscribe to at all (stuff is for using, otherwise, what’s the point) but maybe subconsciously I do.

The shirt I’m wearing is new, I’ve been feeling a bit shopaholic recently (which is both part of and contributes to my general apprehensiveness about life) and I got a new work dress from the people tree sale, and chucked in this shirt, because I need more shirts. I was expecting it to be way smaller and shorter than it is. You can’t really see in the picture, but it’s really quite big. I did briefly consider sending it back for a smaller size, but it is actually the right size around the chest, so the 10 would probably be too tight, and it must be meant to look oversized. Plus it was cheap, and I didn’t want to spend on postage for sending it back. Hopefully it will grow on me.

    That second bag is so cute. I love the shape and the embroidery.

    That second bag is amazing! I've never seen anything quite like it!

    I'm joining you on the challenge, but I started mine today (first post will go up tomorrow).

    Great bags – I love the vibrancy of the colours and the patterns.

    I ADORE that second bag! You simply must wear it more often. Lovely.

    The shirt looks great and I really love the colours of your outfit (as always) especially the bag

    The day three bag is gorgeous! Though, I can see it being slightly hard to pair with things. I wouldn't want too much going on, and I tend to focus on jewelry.

    I love the first one! What a great challenge. I would only last a week as well. I don't have many purses. You look lovely!

    I am not a bag person. I like to have one bag, maybe two.

    I like the blue shirt. if it fits you in the shoulders and under the arms, then it fits. 😉 Hopefully you will like it more as time goes on.

    Love the second bag!

    I think the shirt looks great, it seems very flattering to your top half. Maybe simply calling it a tunic will make you like it better. Otherwise perhaps you could hem it shorter?
