this is awesome!   is there a way o do it on a loom?

Thank you.  I expect there is if you're an experienced loom knitter.  Unfortunately, I'm not.

I do wish Blogster would remind me to log in before I post a reply.{#smiley-yell.gif}

Hello,The ladies at my church are making bags to sell to support the effort of a family in Alberta, Canada, who is fostering native children who have been removed from their homes on the reserve due to abuse & neglect, and many of these children are dealing with Fetal Alcohol Syndrome as well.Would you grant us permission to sell bags made from your Going Green Shopping Bag pattern for this cause? All money earned will go to this family.  Please respond to my request at megcwheeler (at) Hotmail (dot) com.  Thank you very much for your consideration!Grace and peace in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ,Meg Wheeler

Legally. you do not need my permission to sell items made from any of my patterns.  But thank you for asking.  I hope they bring in lots and lots of money for your cause.
