Diane's Fulled Afghan Carpet Bag

Diane -- one of our indispensable behind-the-scenes volunteers -- emailed me photos of her version of our Fulled Afghan Carpet bag pattern. Diane made such a beautiful bag using Lambs Pride (and she has some nice kilims, as you can see). Our pattern was designed by Marilyn King of Black Water Abbey Yarns based on a small pile carpet tribal bag.

Diane helps with responding to our incoming emails. Where does the time go? I have absolutely no idea. Here's Diane with us back in December 2010. I am grateful for Diane's support and very impressed with her Afghan Carpet Bag. I always think that felting/fulling takes courage.

The afghans for Afghans project has 6 Afghan-theme patterns that we sell to promote cross-cultural appreciation. One of these days I will turn them into downloadable PDFs. We're still sending out paper patterns in plastic sleeves.
