Sew What I Did With My Giveaway Prize

 I recently found a great blog written by the creative and talented Suzanne, Love My Fiber. She was having a giveaway, and I was lucky enough to win it! Thanks Suzanne, you rock!!  This arrived in my mailbox on Saturday. It is a kit containing instructions and felt for an applique sweatshirt jacket.  The sheep kit is sooo cute, but the jacket really wasn't me. I thought it would be more fun to use the kit to make a bag for my knitting. I am not one to follow recipes or directions, so I changed some of the applique too.  In between working on the garden over the weekend, I worked on this.  The bag is fully lined, with a flat bottom, so it's sturdy and stands up well. However, I had trouble trying to photograph the sheep with it standing up, so I layed it on the floor for pics.  Here's the finished product.  The front-

And the back-



  1. What a fun idea! The bag looks to be a really useful size too.

  2. Super job Janet and sew fast too!!

  3. Mandy, thanks! The bag is a useful size- it's 16" wide by 15" deep, so it holds a lot.

    Suzanne, thanks so much, I had fun with this:)

  4. That is too adorable and totally appropriate for holding your wool !

  5. Dolly, as soon as I saw the sheep, I immmediately thought of knitting wool ;-) That's how I got the bag idea.

    Tanya, thanks!

  6. What a great idea! It looks wonderful.
