Due Date is July, not June

Hi all, just a reminder that your notions bag and the magnet to go with it are due to be shipped July 31st. Not June 30th. A couple of you thought it was June so I wanted to clarify so you don't get too stressed out trying to get it done. :-)

Any questions, leave me a comment on this post or send an email.


Pattern found!

I finally decided on a pattern. I'm going to make a test bag today and see how it goes! Silly me. Here is the pattern

Here is the completed bag. Isn't it the cutest thing! I hope my pal likes it. Now, off to find a magnet. Is there anything else we are supposed to include?

Still looking for a pattern?

I just got this in my email from Berocco. Looks like a pretty easy notions bag pattern if you're stuck. :)

Berocco bag
Can be found here.

I got started on my pal's bag last night. So excited! Hee hee.

Contest Number 1 Winners!

Yes! WinnerS! I decided I was in the mood for some fun so I picked two winners instead of the original 1 that I promised.

1. RG from Cananda - you win the book called Twelve Sweaters One Way - Knitting Cuff to Cuff!

2. AB from Iowa - you win a lovely set of handmade stitchmarkers, made by MOI!

I will get everything into the mail tomorrow - Congratulations to you both!

Package Completed!

I completed my notions bag, it was my first ever sewn pouch. I also made a DPN case to go with it, and got a magnet from my hometown. I'm not going to post too many pictures, until the girl who's receiving it does receive it! I can't wait to see this notion's bag in it's new home! I hope it gets filled with lots of knitting goodies & goes to Stitch 'n Bitches, etc!
I experimented with my own pattern (from my head) as this was my first ever sewn pouch, and my first time ever using a zipper! I had a good time making it!
So with that.. I give you my sneak peak (above!)

Pattern Search for Knitted or Crocheted Notion bag

Does anyone have a pattern to share?

Pattern Ideas

Hi everyone! I was looking around on the Web yesterday trying to find a nice sewing pattern and I came across SEVERAL FREEBIES on a few sites that could be easily adjusted!

Butterick - the wrist bag or evening bag would work!

McMall's - evening bag or lined cylinder bag would work!

Yes, you do have to give them your e-mail to download the free patterns, but that's not a big deal! Does anyone else have any knitting or crochet pattern ideas they could post? I didn't find many of them...

Our First Contest

I promised you this would be an easy one and it is. Once you've confirmed your pal's address, leave a comment here on this post. See? Couldn't get any easier than that.

Everyone who has posted the comment by June 20th will have their name placed in a drawing to win - well - not sure just 'what' yet but it will be cool! I promise.

Have fun knitting, crocheting or sewing your notions bag!! I've already started mine, I'm excited to see it completed but it's going to take a bit as the stitch is quite small but compact.

Okay, now I have to do my real job. Bye!

Sign ups are now closed.

I will be emailing everyone their partner's information by tomorrow night. Since we don't have that many it won't be a problem to get them out sooner than the 17th. So that means we all get to get started a lot sooner!!!

Have a great time, everyone!
