Bonjour et merci pour la réponse précédente mais j'ai un nouveau problème Je viens de rentrer le sac et il est très beau mais après feutrage les trous ont disparu ! Peut-on sans risque faire des incisions dans la laine feutrée sinon la bandoulière ne peut pas être montée. ... Merci pour votre aide ...

DROPS Design 02.07.2019 kl. 14:58:

Bonjour Hengie, nous n'avons pas d'expérience à ce propos, et, en fonction du poids mis dans le sac, il ne faudrait pas que les ouvertures se déchirent, essayez de bien retrouver ces trous (ils ne devraient pas être complètement fermés, raison pour laquelle on fait 2 jetés), et éventuellement, passez une aiguille dedans (quand le sac est encore humide) pour bien les repérer une fois secs. Bonnes finitions!

Hengie 28.06.2019 - 02:56:

Bonjour Comment monter la bandoulière sur le sac , les explications se contentent de " passer le lien dans les trous " mais j'avoue ne pas comprendre le montage Doit on ensuite coudre les 2 extrémités du lien ou faire un noeud ou quoi ?

DROPS Design 28.06.2019 kl. 06:59:

Bonjour Mme Hengie, effectivement, on enfile le lien dans les trous du sac, puis on coud les extrémités du lien entre elles sur l'intérieur du sac. Bonnes finitions!

Hallo, habe die Tasche gestrickt, sieht super aus. Habe jetzt gefilzt und auch bei mir sind alle Löcher " verschwunden ". Wieviele Löcher waren es ? Waren es insgesamt 8 um den Träger einzuziehen.

DROPS Design 16.01.2019 kl. 08:21:

Liebe Beate, ja genau, es waren 8 Löcher. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Magnifique modèle, facile à réaliser, bien conçu , ayant une bonne tenue et une fermeture efficace. Merci à l'équipe DROPS !

Anna 30.09.2018 - 08:48:

Ik heb een vraag over het aan elkaar naaien van de zijkanten van strook 3 aan de kopse kanten van stroken 1 en 2. Mijn proeflapje meet 17x23 naalden = 10x10 cm. Brei ik een kleurvlak van 20 steken en 34 naalden dan kom ik uit op 12x14,5-15 cm. Dat is een rechthoek, geen vierkant. Mijn vraag is: hoe naai ik de lange kanten van de rechthoek aan de korte kanten van stroken 1 en 2? Hartelijk dank alvast voor uw antwoord.

DROPS Design 30.09.2018 kl. 20:58:

Dag Anna, Bij het vilten is de krimp in de lengte en de breedte verschillend, zodat de rechthoeken na het vilten vierkant zijn (evt. proeflapje vilten in de wasmachine!). Bij het aan elkaar naaien van de lange kanten tegen de korte kanten, zul je het werk een beetje uit moeten rekken, zodat het mooi past. Zorg ervoor dat de kleurovergangen mooi tegenover elkaar komen.

Witam, przed filcowaniem otwory na pasek i guzik były niewielkie a po sfilcowaniu niestety znikły. Martwi mnie szczególnie otwór na guzik. W jaki sposób go poszerzyć? Naciąć? Czy nie będzie się strzępić?

DROPS Design 02.04.2018 kl. 21:15:

Witaj Basiu! Spróbuj namoczyć i rozciągnąć. W tym miejscu raczej bym nie przecinała. Pozdrawiam

Barbara 08.12.2017 - 21:13:

Jednym z kolorów do wykonania torebki wymieniony jest kolor nr 56 szarofioletowy. Niestety w ofercie dropsa nie znalazłam takiego koloru. Skoro ten kolor jest nie dostępny to jakim kolorem go zastąpić.

DROPS Design 11.12.2017 kl. 06:38:

Witam, ja osobiście zastąpiłabym go kolorem jasny szary (nr 03). Pozdrawiam

Ilse Kunze 21.10.2017 - 01:24:

Ich habe mich, so glaube ich genau an die farbliche Anordnung der Streifen gehalten. Leider sind die Farben nicht so angeordnet wie auf dem Bild. Eine Farbe des jeweiligen Seitenteils stößt mit der gleichen Farbe des Vorder- u. Rückenteils zusammen. Ergibt 3 gleiche Farbfelder nebeneinander. Was habe ich falsch gemacht?

DROPS Design 23.10.2017 kl. 09:35:

Liebe Frau Kunze, es sollte nicht so sein, bitte die Farben jeder Streife und die Anordnung (und Strickrichtung) prüfen. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Susanne 20.03.2017 - 11:32:

Nach dem Zusammennähen nehme ich 200 Maschen auf, stricke 3 cm und stricke dann die Löcher. Soweit bin ich. Stricke ich jetzt 7 weitere cm oder bis es insgesamt 7 cm sind also noch mal etwa 3 cm, damit die Löcher mittig im Braungestrickten sind? Danke im Voraus für die Antwort.

DROPS Design 20.03.2017 kl. 13:25:

Liebe Suzanne, dann stricken Sie bis 7 cm von dem aufgenommenen Maschen, nicht 7 cm nach den Löchern. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

CHRISTINE MITCHELL 04.12.2016 - 23:11:

Hi I'm at the stage of sewing the strips together. The problem Ihave is that the rest of strip 3 which should be sewn to the short side on strip 1 and 2 is much longer. I have checked my tension and as required 17 st x22 rows =10x10cm however each colour block (prior to felting) is rectangular being 34 rows. The figure for placement shows the colour blocks as squares. Please help as I would really like to get the bag done properly as a Christmas present. Kindest regards CHRISTINE MITCHELL

DROPS Design 05.12.2016 kl. 10:01:

Dear Mrs Mitchell, you will see in the diagram how to sew the strips tog, ie for 3rd strips you should have 2 more squares on each side these squares will be then sewn to both strips before/after the middle one. Happy knitting!
