While looking for a dowel for her handknitted bag, this designers eyes turned to her children's toybox. Precut Tinkertoy dowels were the perfect size, plus round connectors to hold them in place with childlike style. Knitted in colorful garter-stitch stripes, the bags are worked in one piece, from the base and up to the edges. Instructions for adding a lining are also included. Wooden Tinkertoy parts can still be found at thrift stores, yard sales, and auctions, or you can substitute plain dowels.
