{Custom Order :: Meg's knitting bag}


This particular Gussy Custom Order means a lot to me, because it's for a very special blog reader. Meg always, always, ALWAYS leaves me comments. And they are so awesome, because they are ALWAYS positive. She usually writes me each morning, telling me how much she loves my blog and wishes me a great day.

Well, Miss Meg, I want you to know I look forward to your comments every morning :)
This Custom Order is a knitting bag and I've stuck some of my lonely yarn {the sewing machine steals all my time...} in the bag for the photo shoot. There are 8 pockets for knitting needles and a large opening for about a half dozen skeins of yarn.








This bag rocks! I normally don't become too attached to my Gussy items because I know they are to be sold. But... I wanted to keep this one :) Hah!




I love the extra-wide Gussy ruffle.





This is a prime example of why I love to sew. It definitely fills my need to interact with others, feel needed, and show myself daily that "I can!"





How many of you could get lost in this bag? ;) It's huge and amazing.






So Meg, this bag should be on your doorstep by now.

I hope you love it, create many wonderful projects while using this bag, and let it be a reminder that we all have an impact on one another. You are so inspiring
:)

OMG Gussy! I love it!!! I NEED it! Heck, I think I'd get one for each of my fellow Monday night knitters (if I could afford it). Maybe just for my best friend.

You are super talented and I hope to own a GUSSY one day soon.

Thank you for sharing!

Yes, a beautiful knitting bag. You out did yourself on this one! Very, very, very cool!

Meg said...

Aww, you are too sweet Maggie! I love it, and I already have it full of pretty yarn and needles! It is so big and sturdy that I could use it as an overnight bag if I wanted also! Thanks again for making me this perfect knitting bag and for always being a huge inspiration everyday! By the way ladies, not to brag, but it's even more beautiful in person! (o:

I will take some pics of it later and send them to you if you want me to! Have a lovely day!

What a beautiful, lovely bag. I'm sure Meg, as any knitter would be, is on cloud nine as the owner of the knitting bag.

Wow, what a beautiful and unique bag! Great job! The extra wide ruffle is just perfect for the knitting bag.
