A dilly bag for the challenge..

Yes a dilly bag, this brings back memories of my childhood, My Mum made me a mint green dilly bag for kindergarten. It was my pride and joy, I would don the school bus with my little dilly bag holding my piece of fruit, hankie, and I am sure other treasures. I kept that bag until it finally fell to pieces.

Today I finished one for a special girl that I will fill with hair accessories, such as clips elastics, headbands and lots more. I had to go to my local Op shop to acquire another 50c ball of wool to finish the project.... so now she will get a pen holder and a dilly bag, for the very expensive price of $2.00 that includes the buttons and trim on both articles.

Wonder what else I could make out of odds and ends that I could acquire from the Op shop.
That might be a good challenge to have a recycle month......
