A Made in China Giveaway

I know some people like to consider the odds of winning before entering giveaways, but this one is a must enter! Beautiful treats that would be wonderful additions to any crafter’s stash! Go enter!!! It’ll be worth it! 😀


One of my favorite pastimes in China was shopping in local markets. The chaotic aisles and aggressive salespeople in the touristy markets got old after a while. The local markets were much calmer. They were still busy but mostly filled with locals who needed basic household items. While haggling was still expected, the starting prices were usually much more reasonable.

As I wandered the aisles, I found these bags that I thought would be perfect for knitting projects. There were all sorts of patterns and color schemes. The size is just right for 4-5 balls of yarn and a small project, like a hat or scarf.

      Me too. Even if I don’t win, I think I’ll be visiting Pearl River mart in Chinatown to see if they have anything like that. I think it’s a smart solution for a project bag.
