It’s kind of a repeat from last Monday, and then sort of a review. My new project bag came!!!! Isn’t it awesome! I just love the fabric combo.
This bag was the one I won from her giveaway, Thank you Wanda!!! I adore these fabrics! Hard to detect are the yellow dots in the leaf fabric. The yellow fabric has a tone on tone design. When the light is shining on the outside it creates a color design on the white portions of the lining. It’s magical! Now, if my WIPs came out of it as FOs it would be even MORE magical!!!
And a 2nd bag was ordered for Diva Girl to use for all her girlie things, but don’t tell her, it’s for Easter. OMG! The fabrics!! I plan to fill it with candy. Not sure what I will do for College Girl yet. May need to check to see if she plans to come home that weekend. I am sure she would LOVE tickets to a Cardinals game. But that’s a bit pricey for an Easter gift. LOL!
Both bags are the medium size and measure about 11″Hx9″Wx3″D. The dimensions make for a shallow depth but a very good height. As a knitter I would have liked to have more depth, a square rather than a rectangular. But I am sure Wanda would be open to altering the dimensions on a special request. I tend to like bags where my yarn cake will sit flat in the bottom. The size is more than enough for the yarn and WIP, but I just prefer squared bottoms. One feature that I love is the ribbon loop!!! Both bags are hanging on my armoire by their loops. I can see the small project bag hanging from a belt and being able to knit while walking, or to help keep the bag with you while sitting. With the laundry bag size the loop is perfect for hanging from a door knob or wall hook. The drawstring ribbons are more than long enough to allow the bag to hang from your arm or wrist.
Re-Inventing Mother has such a wonderful sense of fabrics and colors. Um, have I mentioned that already? Well, it’s true! All her bags are just stunning in their trio of colors. I am so done if she ever uses a chartreuse combo!! Hmm, maybe I need to buy a small project bag? Or maybe this has inspired me to drag out that clunky machine and make some of my own? Um, yeah, not so much. But I do want a bunch so I can put all the knit things in them!
Oh, and this. Isn’t it just too cute!
