I bought quite a few Christmas gifts and this bag among other things. I don't know why, but I like the bag. It has lots of pockets and is just fun to me. I can certainly understand that a lot of people won't like it but hey, that is how the cookie crumbles.
There were two hand made items vendors there, the bag lady & another lady selling felted bags. The thing I noticed about both of them, they were not charging nearly enough!
The bag below, cost me $7.50 (including tax) because it was on sale for 50% off. Even at $15, it does not come close to covering the price of the fabric, let alone the TIME required to sew the bag!!! All of their bags were severely under priced, in my opinion.
Ironically, both women admitted that they should probably charge more. Even at the yarn cost prices, the felted bag lady said she only sold 4 bags last month at the craft fair.
I have been in a knitting slump lately...don't know what I want to knit. So...I dug in my stash and came up with kitchen cotton and the pattern from Mason Dixon Knitting. Very fun and a quick knit. I made one last night during Memoirs of a Geisha and one this morning.I bought these two hand made soaps to go in them at the craft fair. Oh my, do they smell delightful!!! They smell just like chocolate mint!! Makes me hungry.
Here they are all tied up in a ball! I will definitely make this pattern again.
