May Giveaway!

Okay, I'm finally back in the states and ready to share this month's giveaway with you!


It's a gorgeous project bag from Daydee's Doodads! It's a great size, about 10x12 inches, enough to fit a good-sized project in it. Definitely a small sweater. And look inside!
PURPLEEEEE! Can you see the stitching detail, too? See how it's a reverse of the colors used on the bag? I love details like that. Here's a close-up:

Love everything about this bag. It's really well made, too, guys. I was particularly impressed with the reinforced stitching, which means this bag will stand up to a lot of opening and closing. In addition, the ribbons that act as drawstrings have a good amount of friction, so the bag won't always be falling open when you take it on the go. Here's a last shot with a few skeins of yarn inside:

So this month, to enter the giveaway, head on over to Daydee's Doodads and take a look around. Then, come back here and leave a comment telling me what your favorite bag is! Don't forget to leave your Ravelry username or another method to contact you! I'll draw a winner at the beginning of June. Good luck!

  3. I love the small knitting bag with the people carrying umbrellas on it (http://www.etsy.com/listing/128061419/knitting-or-crochet-project-bag?ref=shop_home_active). We get a lot of rain on the west coast of Canada, so this bag fits perfectly :)

  5. Not sure how you make the most indecisive person in the world decide which project bag they liked! I like both the sweater project bags and the little drawstring ones so I picked one of each. I like the multi coloured polka dot sweater project bag with the orange lining and also the small purple drawstring bag with the purple patterning on the outside and the tone on tone purple in the lining.

  21. I love the small green bag with the leaf pattern on the inside. It may just have to find a new home with me, although I would use it the other way - with the leaves on the outside! Her suggestion to use it as a spindle bag is a great idea; I'm always looking for ways to transport my spinning, too.

  47. Is it terribly geeky to say that I really love the reversable project bag with the green outside and yellow ribbons, because green + gold = Loki? It is? Well, label me a geek then. Because that's my fave.

  53. After loading up the description for nearly every bag on her Etsy.. I chose this one:
    http://www.etsy.com/listing/126566476/knitting-or-crochet-project-bag?ref=v1_other_2

    It's Yellow, and swirly, and purple and looking a bit batik-ish.. and well, it's just "me". I really like how all the bags are reversible, and coordinated... great giveaway!!
