I have a confession.... I never seem to craft for my husband. I craft for so many friends and family members, but I rarely make things for him. This is partly because he doesn't care much for gifts or clutter, and because if there's something he wants in the world, he buys it for himself, leaving me little to do. Over the course of our 15 years together, I've managed to make him 1 quilt, 1 laptop sleeve, and 1 cozy for his French press coffee maker. But when I saw this pattern a while back, I knew I'd have to make one for him. It's been sitting on the back burner for ages, but now that he's gearing up to go to Gary Con in March, the time was right to bust out my scales, and get to work.
So I stitched up a bag in some of his favorite colors. Blue, black and grey. All the items were in my stash, including leftover yarn, scales from The Ring Lord, leather lacing, and glass crow beads. Gift completed, easy peasy.
