Mid-week projects

This has been a lazy crafting week. I did however manage to crochet this little bag with the pretty pink yarn I purchased last weekend. This yarn is really fabulous. It has about three different shades of pink and a little bit of green in it. I saw a picture of a lovely crochet bag and tried to copy it by using a pattern I had, changed my mind halfway through and ended up using design elements from three different patterns! I really like the little pleats at the top. Easier to do than it looks.

I inserted the O-rings at the top, planning to use a pink belt I had, but it just did not look good. I then crocheted a handle and fastened it with buttons. Really cute bag.

The August issue of Burda World of Fashion finally arrived yesterday! This issue has some lovely french designs in that I am dying to try.

I am looking forward to a crafty weekend making more clothes for the Build Your Wardrobe challenge and I want to start a crochet felted bag as well. Hope you have a good weekend!
