New Bag and I'm now Taking orders
Here is the latest bag. What do you think of the colour ? If anyone is interested I have now decided to take orders for the bags. I love making them, but have decided that four bags is quite enough for me to own, so I may as well sell them (hopefully). The only downside is that they are expensive to make and of course as I have to knit them and then felt them in the wash it's time consuming as any knitter/craftsperson knows. So I have to charge for my time as well as making costs. If anyone is interested please let me know and I will reveal the cost.
This is a new detail that I have added on the back of the bags. I have needle felted a small flower onto the actual bag, whereas on the front the flowers are on brooch pins so can be removed.
All the bags now have a roomy and fairly deep inside pocket, to take a mobile phone keys etc.
I really like this colour and have another gorgeous colour ready to start the next bag. It's in yummy lime, aqua and browns.
Here is a reminder of the last three bags. Varied sizes and all Very individual. These are made from my own pattern, so are really different.
I had decided to start this blog especially for recipes that can be used for all the gluts of fruit and vegetables that having an allotment or kitchen garden can produce. It saves having to use the allotment blog for posting lengthy recipes.
However it looks like my Crafts are taking over my life and this blog during the winter months. So bear with me if it's recipes you are after as I will still post some.
Also If I know of any books or links that I come across that will be of interest to other crafters, who like myself have to do something when the growing season is dormant, I will add the book title or link on here.
If you have a favourite recipe or book that you would like added please let me know. In fact I would love to have your recipies on here and will always put a link to your name and say who supplied the recipe.
I live in Hampshire with my husband Austin, I have 3 grown up children and 4 grandchildren. I Love photography and growing my own veg on my allotment and crafts of all kinds. We travel whenever possible and I always have my camera with me to take photo's of whatever appeals to me, whether it's scenery, or people.
I am now crazy about Crochet too.
