Farmers' Market Bag Give Away

 
Posted by Picasa

I've decided to make three of these string bags and give them away. I already offered one to Curmudgeon. The other two recipients will be selected by a Monkey drawing. Those of you who commented yesterday are already in. I don't mind international mail. Commenting more than once will not increase your chances. Getting your significant other to comment will.

The bags are made of crochet thread. I don't knit. I use a loom. The bags are great for shopping at farmers' markets. They are really stretchy. Don't use them for boxed things. The corners of boxes break the threads. The bags shown in the picture are not the ones I am giving away. I am making three new bags. I think I might dye them with Koolaid just for giggles. Anyway, if you want a bag, leave me a comment. I'll leave this open until Friday.

  1. How long does it take to make one of these cute and practical bags? I'm not at all talented with crafts. My grandmother taught me to embroider when I was a kid, but that's the extent of my needlework talents .. and it lies unused. I always admire people who can create something with their hands. (My hands just hit computer keys all day.)

  2. I started the first one before lunch and I have the drawstring casing done. Should take two or three evenings.

  6. Debbi, these look really special. I haven't done any needle work in a long time. Would have to learn all over again. Kool-aid dye is a new one on me. But I would think it would work just fine, having tried to get it out of clothing with little success. :)
