Knitted soap bag

I put together this soap bag from two practice swatches made from instructions in Module Magic by Ginger Luters et al. The bag is made from two different kinds of worsted weight cotton. The blue cotton is very sturdy and firm, the green cotton is soft and more stretchy. The bag has very long I-cord straps. There is knitted and crocheted edging. It's my own made-up-as-I-went-along pattern. I didn't try to make it pretty or neat.

Next time I will change it as follows: Crocheted strap instead of I-cord, which took forever. Body made in one piece, or two swatches of the same size rather than different sizes. The same edging throughout.
