I'm deflectin' your rejectin'

look i finished another bag...

and i wrote the pattern and everything. i submitted it to crochetme, but they didn't want it.
now i've had some hard things happen to me but man i'm so sad that they didn't want my pattern. maybe it's b/c i got the reply so quickly, i'm not sure.. bummer

so i'm a bit sad. leave me a nice comment if you like my bag. and if you don't have anything nice to say please don't say anything!

ATTN RAOKers if you can tell me what tv series the title is from LMK in the comments and i'll send you a little something something...i'm thinking some yarn.. but maybe some chocolate...or stitch markers i've made.. LMK when you comment!

I love your bag. I think it is very cute. Those "Crochet Me" people are chumps. They don't know good design when they see it! Post it to your blog and you'll see 'em crop up everywhere and then you'll feel better.

Don't know that quote...sorry.

The bag is awesome, and I think it looks really cool. Keep sending your pattern to other places and even magazines.

Kathleen Marie said...

Oh that stinks, because this is a great little bag. I'm game to try all kinds of new patterns... well, perhaps I'll see your lovely pattern appear magically someplace here on the internet--keep submitting! It is wonderful!

Charmed?

I love the bag, really. It's a shame more people don't appreciate it.

Heather said...

very nice bag! It is a shame they didn't want it!

Is your dishwasher behaving yet?

Cheryl said...

Cute bag. Yep I'm pretty sure it's Charmed :) New season starts soon!

Your bag is very cool (even my teenage daughter said so). Don't let one rejection get you down too much. I'm sure someone else will appreciate it.

BTW-I believe your title comes from Charmed, right?

Katie said...

I don't care what crochetme says, I like your bag. If I could crochet I would sure want to make one. Do you take orders? Katie

I love your bag almost as much as the one you made that you gave me. And the fact that you designed it makes it even more special. Who are those people anyway??........listen to us, the ones that matter. I love you!

MrsFife said...

I think the commenter was referring to this TV series called "Charmed"

Kari said...

Try submitting it to Crochet Pattern a Day!

Love the bag

Deneen said...

I have been waiting for a pattern like that for ages, since I do not knit and the only one I have seen is the LB Lucy pattern-it's beautiful.

What about submitting it to the "Crochet Pattern a Day 2007" Calendar Anne Modesitt is doing. If you need info, let me know.

Marvie said...

Love the bag! Very cute I'd make it in a heartbeat!!

Yep, the title is from Charmed, I believe Phoebe said it.... dang I sure miss that show! They play it over here but I never seem to catch the new episodes =(

Shell said...

I think CM made a mistake on this one, I really do. Your bag is great! I hope it won't keep you from trying to submit it other places. It's very original & cute.

Dawn said...

I like your bag. I have never felted anything but would definately try this pattern.

Boo boo on CM!! But not to worry, a better publication will want your pattern :)

Don't give up trying! I used to send my designs in to magazines, and would get SO depressed when they said they couldn't use it right now, or it wasn't what they were looking for... Try, try, and you shall succeed! I think it's cute! Maybe you could sell the pattern on your blog?! There's an idea!
