Good things come in small sizes

My daughter likes to rummage through my handbag looking at all of my things as if they are new to her, describing them always starting out with the words "This is...." and telling me in her best description what it is. She loves to peak in pockets, small bags and just plain dig. Recently I put in a small pouch from Northwoods Felt with a toy horse in it when we went on a long trip in the car and can I tell you, she thought it was the best thing going! She went beyond the "This is..."statement by describing the small pouch as soft pretty and pointed out the colors. Who knew I would get so much use out of a small pouch!

Northwoods Felt is a small business that makes these wonderful little pouches in various patterns and colors. I knit so I know the hard work that goes into this and felting is an extra step that does require time, material and wear and tear on your washing machine! These little pouches are a work of art and have so many uses. They could be used as a gift bag, a discovery pouch for your toddler, storage for a special item in your dresser or just to carry something a little extra in your handbag. As for the holidays, this is a great stocking stuffer and yes, why not give it without having to wrap a small gift, save the paper and time! Either way, it is a special pouch and definitely will be appreciated from anyone you give it to.

I love the "Etc. Bag." I've always wanted to learn to do needle felting, I need to get off my rump. And I haven't knitted in ages :(

My daughter LOVES little pouches, this would go in her stocking if I won!
