Tell The Bobbin Who's Boss - And The Winner Is...


Hannah's patchwork knitting bag and matching needle case caught the eye of our judge Diane Grimshaw, Editor of Simply Homemade magazine.

'I adore all of the entries for different reasons...but I keep being drawn back to Hannah's knitting bag and needle case. The colours and designs of the fabric work fabulously together and I love the idea of indulging in a spot of sewing and quilting to create bags to house knitting materials and needles. Simply Homemade is a multicraft magazine and my readers would love this too!'

I love everything about this adorable duo: the monochrome with pop of yellow, the bow and arrow styling of the patchwork. There's something a little bit Hunger Games about it. I think Jennifer Lawrence would love it too, she could put her bow in the bag and her arrows in the knitting needle 'quiver'.

So very well done to Hannah who is one of our most enthusiastic and dedicated supporters. She has been on a number of our courses including our Beginners Quilting course, and as you can see her skills are now awesome. You can (and should) follow Hannah's crafting exploits on twitter @theboxerdogspjs.
