My Creative Space # 27

Digging out some of the Work in Progress that I have repeatedly shown on my Creative Space,here here to show on here as  FOs  .
IMG_0620The hexagonal base and the shells  are what initially drew me to this pattern.
A quick  project. What took so long for the bag to make it on the blog  considering I had shown it on the Creative Space a long time ago? 
I was holding on to the hope of lining the bag and adding a zippered closure. (After searching all over the net for some sort of tutorial to help me along with those and  finding none at all; plus  being too lazy to figure it out on my own )I ‘ve now decided to let it be as it is .
One day,sometime in the distant future, inspiration might strike and I will figure it out .Until then I am in no rush:))
Project Details :
Yarn :Schachenmayr nomotta Catania in assorted colours.
Hook : 3.75 mm Inox
Pattern : Bucket of Seashells
I did obsess a little over the perfect handles  halfway through this bag.That sort of resolved itself by the time I completed the bag. Its nothing, but all the yarns held together and single crocheted to form a chord. 
Right now I am working with this lovely yarn.I like how soft it is and cannot wait to finish it.When this one skein you see here gets over, my project will be finished too !
That will be end of gift crafting for this year!  and I say Yippeee !IMG_0728
