Ballband Tree

I've taken the ballband craze to another level - I made a ballband Christmas tree bag! I was looking at the holiday bag I made and suddenly saw the outline of a tree in the bands. So I sketched out a pattern and viola! The ballband tree holiday bag. I added a little star button and actually used a drapery tie as a handle (can't believe I found one that matched). Happy Holidays to all!

OK, I'll need to re-read the blog and see if you provided a link to this ballband bag pattern. Is any of this knitting billable time?? Like you knit when you are working on files?? I wish I could do that!! Just read an article where a lady spins (using a hand spindle) when on long phone calls. Can you imagine me doing THAT at work?? LOL
