Having tried to get it to zip up B admitted defeat and was deciding what was going to happen to it when I suggested we kept it and I could make her some padded coat hangers with it. Good idea, but then she came up with an even better one why not use it for the lining of the knitting bag. So having finally finished the covers I took great delight in setting up the sewing machine to start the knitting bag.
A couple of hours later ta dah
the addition of a crochet rose( pattern from Attic24 -thank you Lucy) finished it off beautifully
and every time she opens it she'll remember her prom. I am so pleased with it as was B when I gave it to her at knit and natter last night and I got asked if I would make another for one of my friends there. So once my house is clean and tidied and I've watched the men's curling I have the pleasure of making another. Happy weekend! Anne
