Dolly bag ….a bag for my dollies?

I was taking a peek at Diva Maggie’s blog
and saw she was doing the Rowan International free gift – the Dolly bag.

I said, “Ohhh, I’ve done that too”

Maggie said, “It’s not on your blog- let us see????”

So here is the little beastie…

I really enjoyed doing this bag, even the finger blistering bobbles!

Here’s a close up of the pattern and “evil” bobbles…

The question is though, what on earth do you use it for? It’s too small for a handbag – at least for me with my “survive a week on a dessert island” kit normally housed in my bag 😳

I’m a bit too old to walk down the street with it anyway too (anyone over the age of 8 years is too old!) It’s too pretty to shove away in a box…

I’ve finally found it a use hanging up with my hair dryer, holding the nozzle from my hairdryer and a travel hair curling wand thingy.

What do you girls think – any better ideas out there?

    You did a beautiful job!! I love that “bobble finger” comment…smile!! Mine is all knit up now and just waiting for me to get that extra bit of time to sew it all together.

    I’ve nearly snapped too! O’h where, o’h where is the pattern or are you just very very clever. I have been looking everywhere for the Rowan Dolly Bag pattern. I bought a Rowan book with a picture of the bag but nobody could tell me where the pattern is? Can you help as from your pictures you have done a magnificent job – crossing my knitting fingers that you can. Debbie
