A Crochet Bag

Hello to you all....Well I think my paper crafting and card making has definitely been put on the back boiler at the moment, I have just lost all interest in card making at the moment which is why I went looking for something else to fill the hours....So I have some more crochet to share today...I used you tube again for the inspiration for this project and I must say I love it.. It is just a huge granny square turned into a bag.....I have lined it and decorated with the pompoms and some crochet flowers.




I have just bought 14 balls of yarn to make a  Throw it is a Crochet along project with a facebook group in which you just follow along with a pattern on a weekly basis. I shall also be sharing my progress with you.
well bye for now

Love your bag Doreen. I also have the pattern, but as I am busy on another blanket at the moment,this will have to wait a little. I have also started a CAl..and loving it,(is it the Scheepjes CAl that you have joined?) together with the blanket it keeps me busy. Still doing my cards, but to a much lesser degree...getting so much satisfaction from my crocheting at the moment.
Hugs, Ursula

looks great Doreen, I tend to crochet at night while watching TV. I collect odd bits of wool from people and do blankets for the dogs homes. xxxx

I love this bag, Doreen, especially those bamboo handles! If this was done on a larger scale, it would make a perfect summer beach bag to hold all the goodies we love to take along on a beach trip.

Wow you are such a natural talented person. I could never crotchet, but I used to love to cross stitch. LOL!

Sarah said...

A great bag Doreen. I find I don't papercraft quite so much in the summer months, the light lends itself to crochet or sewing much better!! xx

Hallo liebe Doreen,

wow ist das eine wunderschöne CrochetTasche geworden. Ich finde sie sehr chic. Ich finde es toll das du eine Alternative zum Karten basteln gefunden hast. Auch wenn ich deine wundervollen Karten ein wenig vermissen werde. Manchmal muss man aber einfach eine Pause machen und sich an anderem orientieren. Ich bin schon sehr gespannt auf dein neues Projekt. Bei 14 Knäuel Wolle wird es ja wieder etwas größeres werden. Viel Spaß beim handarbeiten.
Ganz liebe Grüße Hugs Silvi

Gorgeous bag Doreen -I wondered why I had stopped seeing your cards on FB then we must have got unfriended when I was locked out for 24 and had to revert to real name to get back in!!!This is the only basic stitch I can do lol-I am still making cards but dabbling with a bit of mixed media-painting and stamping
