Introducing the Piglet

The other day I talked about colors and showed my latest knitting, the striped pink&violet bag. Many of you, my dear readers, were convinced that it was the spitting image of him. And oh-oh, so it was - and the Piglet-bag was born!

I knitted the bag ready and felted it in a washing machine. I was busy whole weekend and just had a look of the bag every now and then when I hurried by it. I saw it as a Piglet-bag, yes, but I wasn't convinced that it would need a pig on it, too. I thought it might just be too much - and ended up making it a Piglet featuring birdies-bag. No surprises there then.

I found this matching colored reused cotton from my stash (dear sis, you recognize this? I think you bought this circa 1989 or so? It still is so very pretty and perfect to this bag!) so the Piglet is lined with pinks and violets (and it closes with a violet button) too.

I am so happy with it now - somewhat pigletty still but not too much so. What do you think?

Happy Wednesday!

This time of the year...

Usually around this time, when children go back to school, and you can just about to smell the autumn, I start to dig deeper in my fabric...
