My Beautiful Bag

This is my wonderful bag created for me by Trudi of Knitting and Chocolate fame. It was part of a Ravelry swap mentioned earlier and I was so swept up with trying to create the best bag for my Swapee that the fact that I was going to get one almost slipped my mind. That made getting a big brown box in the mail all the better - especially when it cried 'Exterminate' as I placed it on the counter. I knew I was in for a treat!

The bag itself is felted and wonderfully lined with a heap of useful pockets. The lovely scroll work, inspired by a medieval post I had made early, flows into the sturdy handles which are also lined. Note the little green LED torch on the right side! The bag is big enough to take tools, notebook, diary, ipod and knitting, and I've already been using it daily. I don't lose my little coin purse so often now because it has a dedicated storage soace.

But wait! There's more!
A talking Dalek Chocolate Easter Egg, Merino et Soi yarn, chocolate Bilbies, a book and stitch markers. One spoilt knitter I am.

The egg has been eaten but its voice box is destined for this knitted Dalek pattern - maybe for next year's Easter Show?

Better check that The Rules allow for talking toys. :)

So glad you like the bag! (Knew the chocolate would be fine, though. Nomomomomom.)

You've got to enter a talking dalek in the show now. I'll be so disappointed with you if you don't. It's a winner, for sure.

And the bag is green; why am I not surprised? LOL

Seriously, that is one beautiful bag; I look forward to seeing it in reality on 18th!
Congratulations to Trudi!

What a beautiful bag - and I think a talking Dalek would be fantastic - especially if it shouted "EXTERMINATE" at an unsuspecting judge!
