Thanks! Silver,
I decided to use a different fabric.. for my 'proto-type' knitting bag.. than the fabric like your bag.. (I actually had the same fabric as the beautiful one that you had made, that I had bought a long time ago,.. and I had asked others about 'what features' (the loops) was on that 'expensive' brand .. which I've never seen in person before.

Then later, I was so happy to see your posting w/ your wonderful bag that you had made.) *We have the gore-tex fabric here.. which is a wonderful fabric.

I went to the fabric market to get the lining and the snaps.. boy, was that fun trying to FIND WHERE THE SNAPS were located.. in this 6 story building! It's one of those things where I'd seen 'the snaps' in the past.. but, when I wanted to buy them-- where oh where were they now? :rofl:

Your bags are beautiful.

:muah: Thanks again! I won't post any new stories- (Until I post the winner's name) I don't want the Thanksgiving story to get buried .. but, do check in daily to read what others have posted. *or read some of the older entries- if you've not read them!

It's very heart-warming to read the stories that people are leaving behind. I hope that many more post stories.. spread the word.. so, that we'll get lots of amazing stories posted.

:cheering: Go check the blog out and share stories of strangers helping you or you helping a stranger.
