My New Bag

I recently had to throw away one of my favorite bags because it was too damaged (or should I say well used and loved).

But as nothing goes to waste here in my art/craft world, I completely took it apart, saving the zippers and other good bits. Then I crocheted a fun and colorful cotton bag, about the same size as the old one, and used the old zipper for closure, as well as the inside pocket (the zippered one) that I sewed into the lining.

And because it’s a summer bag, why not adding some flowers to it? 🙂

I also needed another inside pocket because I am a pocket person. 🙂 And because I didn’t have any more of that blue fabric or recycled pockets, I crocheted it.

Now I have a wonderful, colorful, fun and unique bag! I’m happy! 🙂

Late Summer Photos and a Giveaway

Just some pics of my neighbourhood – a flower here, a texture there, and my doggie of course. 🙂

And now comes the fun part: I decided to give a little something away as a “Thank you” to the readers of my blog. I started blogging only six months ago, and I’m enjoying it immensely! I made this velvet bag in pearl – white color, and embellished it with a doily that my grandmother,who died several years ago, crocheted. So it has a sentimental value, well, for me that is :-). I added white buttons just to make it a little bit more fun, and there you have a 9,5 x 7,5 inch bag, very soft and feminine.

So if you like it, leave a comment or just say “Hi” and I’ll randomly pick a winner and post the name on Monday 12th of September.

Thank you for visiting my blog, big hugs to all! 🙂
