Something Pretty Bag
Over the week I worked on this bag with the sole aim of having it ready for FO Friday.
The only reason for that is , now my FB page has fifty five likes and a new follower to my blog!Soo super cool people , thank you for inspiring me to get better at what I do. And welcome.
When I saw the picture of the bag on Casey plus 3 ‘s place ,I was tempted to make one for myself as I loved the shape of the bag.The yarn was a gift from Shanna.I used a F hook. The crocheting part was easy, as its just joining squares.Lining the bag was inevitable as the finished bag was kind of holey.What s the point in making bags if they have holes in them and things keep falling out of the bag?! So decided to go ahead and line it.Its always the lining part that has me
I think I did a fairly decent job with a lining, even though I am not 100% happy with it.The pocket however I’m well pleased with.I thought it was too big and too deep, but it turned out to be just right.
This Cute fabric , I got super cheap from Daiso for 500 fils.. Its not quilting cotton,its thin cotton but I love how perfectly it matches the bag.
For the handle,I decided to use these braided leather handles I’ve had for ages. I felt the crocheted ones would sag given the yarn material. Lily Sugar and Cream and Laura Cotton would be the ideal for bags in my opinion. I just crocheted the handles in as I did SCs around. I decided to forgo the closure for the bag as it seems unnecessary right now.Only as I start using it , will I know if I made the right decision or not.
