I’ve been asked by the creator of Share A Square to be part of this exciting endeavor along with Barbara of Purplemoose Gazette. The story goes that the first young man who received the first SAS afghan didn’t want to remove the tags that are attached to each and every square identifying the maker of that square. He was finally convinced to remove the tags so not to tear them, but this sparked an idea of SAS creator, Shelly of The Eclectic Life, to let’s include a small handmade bag with each afghan to hold all the beautiful tags!
Thus birthed the idea for Share A Square, Bag Project! This is where you come in! We need your help, and you can be as creative as you like! Oh, did I hear you say you can’t crochet? So what! We are looking for bags that kids would love, so sew it, bead it, crochet it, knit it, felt it! Creativity is the key!
Just a few guidelines for the Share A Square, Bag Project
1. We are limiting how many bags each person should make to 5. Why? To have large variety, and to let those who were not able to participate in crocheting for SAS to participate.
2. Email me at yellowrosesgarden AT gmail DOT com to let me know you are participating. Also to get the address as to where to send the finished bags.
3. How big should the bag be? Remember this bag is to hold 48 tags, so a 6 inch drawstring bag would be ideal! But then again, creativity is the key! Make them fun, colorful but durable!
If you need a pattern or just some inspiration, check out some of these links for ideas and patterns. (I’ll add more when I come across more and if you have a pattern you’d like to share, please let me know!)
