Bags and purses..

You know you are hooked when there is one pattern that must be found either on the net or on the bookshelf... Well I Googled and visited so many blogs and Pinterest and was totally amazed at the number of bags that can be crocheted.... with or without a clasp, some with zips... today being a rest day for me, I decided to (big mistake) look through my patterns...
I remember as a teenager making an orange shoulder bag , I loved the bag and took it with me on those special occasions.. :))

this is the first coin purse I have made in 8ply synthetic yarn not very pretty at all......

Now this one is much better.. crocheted in pink 4ply cotton 3mm hook . (Bendigo cotton )

I like this bag started out an African flower but I wanted a square so this is my interpretation ....

The three bags I love to make at the moment,  the one in light pink is made in 4ply cotton the flower made differently into the square..

The layout for the bags... 13 squares this pattern..

The beginnings.. Links do I hear you say ??? Well this one will inspire you for sure  ..crochet bag    ..... Thats me I'm out of here and off to the craft room to rat through my cottons..... Till next time happy crafting :)) Pat..
