Did you notice the bag on the door in yesterday’s post? Well there’s a story behind it …
I had it in a pile to take to the charity shop. It was a yellow tartan colour and there was a button missing. I wasn’t too keen on it but as I turned it inside out (to empty it) I decided I liked the grey lining so much better. So voila it’s now a lovely new(ish) bag that cost me nothing! No wonder I don’t get to leave much into the charity shops. I always end up pulling things out thinking I can do this that and the other with them. At least this time I actually did it though!
The bag was obviously meant to be as it is also the perfect place for my new knitted corsage. I saw this picture in a magazine and loved the corsages. I thought ‘i want one of those’.
I went online and they were on sale. I thought ‘yipee’ … went through the process of ordering the lovley mossy green one only to be told then that it was out of stock. Not one to be defeated I thought ‘i’m sure I have some wool similar in colour’ and of course, I did. So, I spent a couple of evenings working out patterns from about 3 different books and voila … here’s my version –
The moral of this story …. double check, in fact treble check your charity shop bag before you leave it in. You never know what you’ll end up with.
