Tini of Snazzy n Such organised a little get together at her new studio/home so that for those who will miss the Bee next week can meet up with Shanny too. (Welcome home Shanny! And have a lovely holiday!!) And Tini had been wanting a crochet bag, so this was a great opportunity for me to improve on my usuall crochet bags. This also takes about 2 days to make. Have a look...
Getting him to hold the tote was not as hard as I thought. LOL!
The flap for the button was a tacky one. Finally a use for the Afghan needle I bought from Macy months ago. Actually found a tutorial on You-tube and it was quite easy to learn. The stitches turned out really nice and even.
Close-up of where I began crocheting the flap for the bag.
Same principles as crocheting. The buttonhole was easier than I thought. Wow! I like my Afghan needle!!!
This bag has a base. I wanted a bag that sits up when you put on the floor.
And to fit a box of three tiered containers for Tini's sewing knick-knacks.
Fits snugly like a bug!
Close-up of the Afghan stitches. Turned out really neat. If I use the same crocheting method for a flat piece, you'll see reversed crochet stitches on alternate lines, but with an Afghan needle it's like knitting all on the front. LOVE THE BUTTON TOO!!!
This is just Nigel, saying Hi! to Everyone!!! I miss him!!! He's gone for church camp with granny this weekend.
