My second bag is completed and packed with gifts for a friend (more of that in a moment). My rather hesitant start at this crochet bag turned into real pleasure as I found my rhythm and the bag grew and grew very quickly.
I knew I was going to end up with a rather small version of this bag as I only own one crochet hook and I was too impatient to wait until I could buy the right size - so my finished bag is more of a handbag size. As before I couldn't resist embellishing it and when I saw this post on Attic 24 I found the perfect simple crochet flower to use.
The end result was very pretty and as one of my best friends was celebrating a special birthday this weekend I decided it would make a lovely re-usable gift bag to hold her gifts.
and Hummingbird Bakery tinned notecards (Paperstyle Notecards in Tins). (Both items that I have myself and love - hope she will too!)
With one week left until String-a-long is finished I already have my third bag started (crochet again, I am well and truly hooked - ha ha!) The photo's of your bags on flickr are fantastic, I hope you are all very proud of what you have made this month and of all those plastic bags that won't get used. Keep knitting / crocheting lets see how many we can manage before the end!
