I was having a little think about my next project and decided that I really needed a bit of colour for the next thing I would tackle. By colour, I mean bright and bold! So thinking about this made me think Summer and of the festival season. So this lead me to come up with an idea for making a festival themed bag.
I had a little look through my stash of wool and came up with these colours. (I later added a purple too!)
Then I went on to use a granny spike stitch using these colours to create the main body of the bag.
Following this, I folded it over and created an overlap for the opening and then stitched the sides together.
Once this was completed, I added tassels at the bottom of the bag with the coloured wool to create a lovely rainbow fringing effect.
Next I used a piece of muslin to create a simple lining and then sewed this securely into the inner of the bag.
After this, I began to crochet a multicoloured strap and edged it with red.
Finally, I added a lovely large button and a small crocheted loop to close the bag.
Then "Ta-dah!" All done! I really love this bag and it makes me very summery. Take a look on my Etsy shop if you would like one.
Bye for now
