Honey, I shrank the bag!

This is a sweet little tin button, from Norway originally. It was on my very first second-hand buy, a hand knitted cardigan a la Setesdal. I was 16, on my own in the b-i-g city of Göteborg (not big at all...) and I had seen the film Annie Hall... I don't know why, but I believed a sweater like that one would complete the style. I loved the sweater but all that remain are the buttons.

I knitted a really big bag......put it in the washing machine and out came this tiny little purse. With a cute button, at least. But it's too small.

Maybe you need to find a little girl to give it to?! I suppose Olle has no interest, hehehe. I can't quite believe you made that actually....amazing.

The button is a beautiful, tiny, round memory.

Happy Easter dear Anna! Hope your energy levels are rising.

Väskan är ju urgullig. Du får väl ha den till ditt läppstift...eller parkeringspengar...
Vet du, de små söta Bohusmuddarna säljs INTE från Bohusläns Museum utan du får kontakta Solveig Gustavsson på www.solsilke.se. Det är hon som gör iordning materialsatserna o muddarna har hon bara till kurser. Lycka till!
Å trevlig helg!!!

Hello Anna! I've come to look at your bag several times now. It's very lovely--the colors are wonderful. I love the button with the tiny squirrel.

I agree with Eleanor...if it's too small for you, maybe it would make a wonderful present for a girl. (A very special girl, of course.)

PS-I love seeing the things you make.

Hope you're doing well.
