For this give-away I’ll be giving this project bag away:
I sell these bags in my shop. Here’s a description for you:
Do you knit and walk at the same time? Are you always bringing a project along, “just in case” you have some moments while out and about to knit a few stitches? Does your project every get lost in a large bag, stitches sliding off of needles as you tried to extract it from the depths within? I know I’ve had all of the above experiences and kept yearning after the knit-on-the-go bags I would see from big retailers. I didn’t like that they were made of nylon, so I never purchased one. Instead I kept saying to myself, “I’ll make one someday!” I finally did and love having it. Now I’m sharing my sock sack with you!
What’s different about this on-the-go bag? The outer material is made of mid-weight cotton/home décor weight fabric so it is sturdy. The inner material is a recycled vintage sheet with a leaf and butterfly print in shades of green. All the seams are serged for durability, and the lining assures that your needles won’t get stuck in any seams. Seven grommets surround the top of the bag allowing for an easy drawstring closure. The drawstring itself is a sturdy, all natural, unbleached cotton rope cord. It’s long enough to tie around your wrist, to a belt loop, or to another bag you might be carrying, just in case you “need to” knit and walk at the same time.
Measurements: 8.5” tall, bottom measures 6” in diameter
How to win:
- Leave a comment between now and May 31st. Tell me about a project mishap you’ve had (walking and knitting mess-ups, sewing sleeves in backwards, etc) and what you learned from it.
- I won’t be able to ship internationally, I’m sorry.
The winner will chosen randomly, with possible bonus points (as in another entry or two) depending on the humor or lesson learned in your comment. I’ll announce the winner on Monday, June 1st and will ship the bag by June 3rd.
Also coming next week–look for vintage sheet produce bags in the shop. In honor of the bursting season I thought I’d change up the cotton muslin I usually use in making my bags and will have a few limited edition produce bags made from vintage sheets.
