I am making a dark blue bag that will be decorated with white and light blue flowers. For now here is the bag:
I used a shell stitch throughout to create the pattern of the main body of the bag. The shell stitch is done by crocheting three double (treble) crochets into one stitch or gap and then skipping two stitches.
Once I have finished the flower decoration I will line the bag and add a zip. I’ll put up a post of the complete bag when it is done. 🙂
I made these two birthday cards for friends. How do you like them?
This quick little bobble necklace is the product of the last Hook Club. It was a little fiddly but great fun to make these. So fun in fact that I made another one just like it for my friend shortly after. The pattern is free from Lion Brand Yarn and is very straight forward and easy once you get the hang of it. It’s certainly a great option for a little present and the choice of yarn determines how smart or casual the necklace will look. It would also be nice to make a longer one and wear it in several layers or maybe to have a shorter, bracelet version to match the necklace.
I recently completed this small patterned bag as a present for a friend. I found the pattern for this Granny Stripe Boutique Bag on TangledHappy.com
I love the pattern. It’s so cute and works up really quickly and easily. I made only one change to the pattern. Instead of sewing up the bottom of the bag I inserted a flat bottom.
This is what I did:
Ch = chain
hdc = half treble crochet / half double crochet
Row 1: ch 7.
Row 2: work 1 hdc in 2nd ch from hook, 5 hdc, ch 1
Row 3-15: 6 hdc, ch1
Row 16: 6 hdc, finish off
Now turn the bag inside out and sew the bottom in. Turn the bag back and you have a nice smooth finish.
Oh yes, and I also filled the bag up with chocolate… 😉
I made this stork baby card for a new little arrival, a sweet little baby boy, some years back. I made it up as I went along as I couldn’t find a pattern that suited me at the time. What do you think about it?
