One of the perks with Raglan Guld is that I often get to keep the designer's remnants....ooooooo.....arhhhhhh I hear you say! This week the Ink & Spindle girls sent me an email "Please keep the remnants", well my little head started ticking.
I typically love to sell some for Oxfam . (which I still may do) But this time I wanted to make a very special gift. (Oh, the last lot arrived safe and well over at Angie's House! Yeah, thanks Mr Postman!)
See I am the worst friend in the world for remembering birthdays. I actually don't place allot of importance on them because someone's age is irrelevant to me. If I love them and they love me back, thats all I need. Well this week I sent a birthday message to my beautiful friend Kel, singing away with the kids on my knee, not realising it was her 40th. So.......OK......I think thats pretty special!! ........off to the machine I went with Lara Cameron's "Bonsai in Olive on Cream" and came up with this......
Her very own Knitting Bag!!! Isn't it just Delish!!! I have done one of these before and you can read more about it Here!
Of course you have to add in a very special vintage button from the oppy...
Paired with some Pumpkin for the lining. See...... she loves orange!
And finally, no fabric is to be waisted...........a super cool patch on the back!!
Happy Birthday Kel, I will love you until you are old, gray and still married to that cranky Fav.... xxoo
