Hmmm...what can I say, I'm just a little in love.
The words crochet, granny and hexy's can only mean one thing...lots of yummyness.
It started like this. Just a few crochet circles in juicy colours.
Which soon and rather pleasurably multiplied. It's just a shame stitching in the 294 ends isn't quite as pleasurable.
I kind of designed this as I went along, crocheting a bit and frogging a bit to see what worked best. This technique was employed to it's utmost with the handles.
I added a plain edging to keep any stretch to a minimum and just to finish them off neatly.
I didn't want to just stitch the handles on, I wanted to do something a little bit different, lets call it a design feature. lol. Mind you... don't ask me what I did, I was just winging it at the time but it seemed to work out okay! I suppose that's what being creative is all about.
I actually intended this bag for me.
So I totally indulged myself with the a beautiful lining fabric.
I looks a bit Cath Kidston-ish. I even put a zip pocket in, my first ever YIPPETY-DO!
Unfortunately, needs must and all that, so my new 'baby' is sitting in the MarmaladeRose Etsy shop waiting for someone to love it as much as I do. sniff, sniff.
Oh well maybe I'll start another one for me while I'm away on holiday. Yes the H word! Excitement!
There hasn't been the H word around here for quite a few years.
But Wonderful Man and I are having a little holiday to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary so if I don't manage to slip another post in before we go away you know why.
Till next time
love Fi x
