I am overly pleased with myself this week, because I have not just one, but two FO's this week to share, and both are crochet. The first one I have been working on for about a month, so it was a bit over-due. Without further ado, my market bag:
It is big--there are 3 beach towels in the bag for the picture, and it has a nice shape. At first I thought it was "too big" but now I just love it. I can't wait to take it to the beach. Or a picnic. Or a farmers market. Anywhere. The pattern is free, and the yarn is Lily Sugar'n Cream cotton. I learned quite a bit with this project, and my crochet skills are steadily improving. So much so in fact, that I tried this:
A crochet wire and bead bracelet. It was a bit difficult to use wire, but super fun. It has given me loads of ideas to try in to future. You can't see the back but I just added a simple clasp, I think next time I might look into magnetic clasp, as it is a bit tricky to get on/off. I used a free pattern, and some jewellery wire I picked up in the local craft shop. Fun stuff!!
That's it for me this week. Happy Crafting!!
