Isn't it cute! I knit up this little bag in just a few days. It is knit with large needles and two strands of wool yarn. Then it is felted. This is the first time I have felted anything and I was very nervous about ruining it in the wash. But it turned into the cutest little thing!
Doesn't it look just like a little Easter Egg in the grass:
Donna at Quiet Life makes these little bags all the time and I have been interested in making one for a while. I found the pattern for the Buttonhole Bag at Mason-Dixon Knitting.
I took my new little bag with me to the eye doctor yesterday (my eye sight is slightly worse than last year - no much but a little - waaa) and it was a nice size for holding my wallet, my contact case and a little bottle of solution, my eye glasses, and my perscription. It would hold one or two small diapers and a baggie of wipes if you have a new babe to keep you company (Laurie and Heather and Mary), or a paperback book and some sunblock and your swim pass, or a camera and a snack, or....
It was so fun to knit that I picked up a little more yarn and have started another one - I should be able to finish it at the park today.
