Daphne's Red Hot sling Bag

This bag was on my list of to do for the longest time I guess.For some reason, I kept putting it off thinking thinking it was hard.....so whats new?!

Anyways, here it is.....

For stitch closeup

Project details:

Pattern : Daphne's red hot sling bag

Hook: 3.5 mm Inox

Yarn: Schachenmeyr no motto Catania 100% cotton

  • the bag Colour :0192 lot :4490

  • the flower Colour: colour: 0108 lot: 5855

Tid bits:

  • I used a Skein and a wee bit of another skein in red.

  • I was expecting a bigger end product but I think I am happy with the size

  • I really love the texture the FP dc creates along with the shells.

  • was a wee bit disappointed that it was not that different from Donell's Pullstring Bag, except for the bag bottom which was the reason I wanted to make this bag in the first place. ( so why am I complaining_ not complaining its just that I realised ,only after I started making the bag that they both are not very different.)

  • I wanted the flower to pop out so used another colour for the flower too.

  • I think the beads  match the stopper flower really well. no?
