Knitted Make-up Bag

Hello fellow stampers and friends!

I recently took a 12 hour train ride to Ottawa to visit my two granddaughters and their parents.  What shocked me about the 12 hour trip was how quickly the time went by.  I can’t wait for my next visit.

My oldest granddaughter loves pretending she is all grown up so I knitted her a make-up bag in her favourite colour and filled it with pretend make-up and an old tiny phone.  When my department knew about my trip and the make-up bag, one lady brought in the faux make-up to add to the bag.  When I walked into work one day, there was a phone with an an anonymous note saying this was for my granddaughter’s bag.  I’ve got awesome co-workers.

Do any of you knit or crochet?

Back in the 1980’s I knitted fairisle sweaters and bunting bags for babies.  After 30 years away from knitting I am trying to relearn reading of patterns and knitting again.  Unfortunately for me, it’s not like riding a bicycle.  I’m struggling but am stubborn and won’t give up.

Have a terrific end of your weekend.

Gorgeous bag, love the colors and pattern. You do have great co-workers, I bet she just loved it!
Crocheting is so much easier for me but it does take some relearning every time I do it, I have a feeling one of these times I just won’t get it.

What a wonderful post, Bethie! That bag is amazing and so is the whole idea and also your coworkers, too! My Katy’s favorite color at that age was “puhple”. She still loves it and would have loved a makeup bag. Good on you, don’t give up! It’ll come back to you, I’m certain. HUGS! xoxo
