I've been waiting for a while to be able to show you this. When the blog hop first came up I wasn't sure if I wanted to take part; what would I make? I agreed to do it before I had any idea what I was going to make. Many knitting projects take too long and spinning while fascinating to watch often results in a skein that looks better in person or once knitted up. Felting is not something I'm good at and nor is crochet; though I do make a mean dishcloth in cotton. Cotton though is not what was needed for this hop so I kept thinking. Sewing was an option and I did have a possibility for making a shawl for my historical outfits, but then the latest installment from the Vintage Purls Winter Sock Club arrived and all my problems were solved!
Each winter there is always a colourwork pattern in the club, several times these have been socks which would have taken too long, last time was a tam which would probably have been ok, but this time was the cutest thing ever!
May I introduce you to Bunnybags aka Miss Moneybags.
|Yarn is leftovers from other Vintage Purls projects; in its prior outings this yarn became a pair of bug socks and a pair of bug mittens. It's lined with 100% wool felt and sewn into the frame with wool too.|
|The inside, not as neat as I'd like; never sewn one of these up before and it was quite awkward.|
|The bottom, this is a moss stitch derivative; ignore the crumb, not sure what that's from.|
