But today the weather was fine, sunny and quite warm. So I took some pictures of my bag I finished last week. I have already shown it almost finished in a previous post, but now it is completed. Hooray!
I used Sylecraft Special DK yarn for this bag in the colours Lipstick, Pomegranate, Fondant and Meadow. I lined the whole bag, even the handles because I like them firm and stable. I used the fabric called Rosalie from IKEA, it gives the bag a romantic touch. I do love it!
This bag has not been the first bag I crocheted. My first bag has been a variation of Lucy's 'Jolly Chunky bag' you can find here Jolly Chunky Bag. I have used it a lot until now and I do love it very much, as well.
I lined this one with a pink fabric that matches the bags' colours. I added a shell edging to the handles because I wanted the bag to be really, really flowery-powery.
Today I discovered a little hole in the fabric. I really don't know how it happened. I felt miserable about it but then I rifled through my sewing basket for something that would help me to fix the hole. And I was lucky! I found a small hearty patch that had exactly the right size and colour for my bag. What do you think?
I love my bags and there are so many patterns I want to try soon. My mother would like to have a white bag for next summer, something simple to wear with summer dresses. I will have a look on pinterest, maybe I can find a nice pattern there.
Have a nice evening, Viola
