This sack is much prettier than most I have seen. Can't wait to make one. I have a great nephew coming soon. Lovely work
 
Thanks for your kind words. If he's full term you probably want to make the larger one.
 
Hello Suzetta, I am wondering if you would allow me to use some of your patterns for a yarn class for homeschoolers. We have a co-op and I will be teaching a class this fall. I do have to charge for it, but that is for materials. I am planning on having the students knit or crochet for charity as well as a few things for themselves. Thank you.

Lovely! And perfect for using to make for the nenwborns at our local hospital. I've been looking for just the right pattern to use, and this is it!

Thank you so much for sharing with us!
