This was the first Beanie Bag that JBW did. It came in a zippered pouch approx the size of a pencil pouch. The pouch itself is sewn from a rough cotton. Similar to a tote bag, but much more supple. The zipper is a bit rough to open and close and the teeth on it are rather rough.
Inside there were 4 samples of yarn. The card inside listed the yarn companies for each of the samples, but no indication of which sample was from which company. Also included on the card was a pattern for a knit cuff or a crochet wristlet.
In addition to the samples, there was also a small envelope containing 2 stitch markers, 3 mother of pearl buttons, and a small sticker.
In fairness, while I was not overwhelmed, I did not feel like I was slighted in any way. Honestly my two biggest complaints for this bag were the zipper and the not knowing which sample corresponded to which brand. I figured the first month or so they would be finding their footing and the bags could only go up from here!
As you’ll see in the next few posts, I was right and I’m really glad I stuck with them through the first few bags. Have a great weekend everyone!
