The past few years the day before Valentine's day has become an increasingly popular day to celebrate girl's friendships. I am ALL for that. For more information see here
Today unwittingly I made myself a deep red handbag, thinking I was gifting a little Valentine present to myself,
The yarn which is of the t-shirt variety has a lot of 'give' or elastic you may call it and must not be crocheted too tightly, loose hooking is called for. I was actually making something else this morning with it, but realised that it was becoming a spectacular fail. Enjoying hooking with this Boodles yarn, I thought to try it out as a bag. With no pattern and just my imagination an hour later and a rummage through my crafting cupboard to find the acrylic see through handles that I bought years ago but have never had the need for, I had my very own bag and I must say I'm a little bit in love with it.
|I used hdc as it's quick to give height and fast to hook up|
|Within 15 minutes of completion, it was put in use|
|Supersize crochet bag|
|Happy Galentine and Valentine Day wherever you are|
PS Anyone know what has happened to Boodles yarn? Bought mine a few years ago and today when googling them the site was not available?
