Scrapbuster Satchel Kit/Bright (Urth Yarns)
This quick and colorful satchel kit combines Urth Yarns caked and ready to work: Uneek stripes for the linen and floral stitch motifs, and Monokrom ombred welts for the straps and base.
With a nod of thanks to @MarinJa, the Uneek motifs were inspired by her Pixelated Scarf and Kim’s Kabuto, reformatted to blossom from garden rows of wrapped flowers worked flat one from the next with no seaming. The base and straps are worked in 3 shades of Monokrom, in a sturdy welt stitch in the round, the straps bound by I-cords on either side. The only seaming are Kitchener joins at the satchel base and I-cord ends. With instructions for adding an optional lining (fabric not included).
