Monday 13th August 2012Back to the bag making again! I found a lovely free pattern on line for a Japanese Knot Bag and just had to have a go. This bag was relatively easy to make and while I adjusted the pattern slightly, next time I will make the handle longer and the actual bag slightly bigger. This would make a lovely gift for a little girl, with a few items put inside (ie. hairbrush, hair ties or even a little handmade hat)!
I also managed to make this cute key keeper for a girlfriend's daughter. It is her birthday next month and she will be 17. This little guy will fit into a standard envelope easily so it won't cost me a fortune to post.
free pattern if anyone wants to have a go at this guy.
I was able to harvest a colander full of greens this morning. This will be placed into the refrigerator for dinner one night this week.
On the crochet front. The start of another ripple blanket saw me make a trip to Spotlight this morning to purchase some more wool. Luckily they are having a 30% off sale at the moment as I walked out with 14 balls. Stay tuned for a sneak peak at this project. (I need another project like I need a hole in the head - what am I thinking?)
