Been hooking....

....okay now, raise your hands....whose first thought was NOT about crocheting?? Naughty. LOL

Since joining a local knit & crochet group I have been having fun starting AND finishing several projects. Right now I have a thing for bags.....hoping to branch out to a garment soon.


Anywho.....I made myself this purse in my 2 fave colors, pink & black. I am very happy with the results!!


My Ripple Purse comes in both kit & crochet and is from Coats & Clark. I also have another of this pattern nearly finished in 2 shades of blue that will be up for sale.....thought it would go nice with a pair of jeans.

I was insanely thrilled when I found the "perfect" lining fabric for me. It is pink, piratey and has glitter.....now what more could a girl ask for, seriously??

My second bag is green, both for the environment and literally. I Adore this new Sugar & Cream Stripes yarn and hope they keep making more colors.

The market bag pattern was from Joanns. Since Michaels is good enough to have a Sugar and Cream yarn sale going on right now, I plan to stock up this week (4 for $5).

I will probably make another market bag since it is good for the earth, quick and fun to make and really.....I just think it looks cool!! Enjoy!!

Lovely bags! Everytime I see pirate fabric I think of you. :-)
I wish I could crochet and knit. I have tried several times, and I just can't seem to get the hang of it.

Shelly, your new bags are beautiful. Love the fabric you found too.. So multi-talented in your art I wish I could do a quarter of what you can do.

Wishing you abundant blessings,
Tami

The bags look terrific! I too can't seem to get the hang of it. My sis is trying to teach me and when she's there I do alright and then forget how to do the stitches when she's not around. Can't wait to see your window boxes and chair.
