I have nearly finished the crochet bag just need to add the lining and stitch on the handles. I will finish it next week. On the weekends I do other things than crafts especially sewing. I serve in a charity shop on Saturday morning and relax on a Sunday and usually go car boot, though I still do crochet or knitting. I have made and listed two fabric bags in my shops.

I have been knitting up oddments of wool that I like and I now have a selection, I thought I would stitch these together into a patchwork of complementary colours and make a bag. I have also started on a crochet bag. It will have four granny squares in the middle and a gusset of double crochet stitch around sides and bottom.

I have made a shoulder bag with the burgundy acrylic yarn with specks of colour that I bought a little while ago. This is my own design. It is knitted in a garter and stocking stitch making a pretty ridge pattern. The lining is cotton in a tan colour with calico for added strength and two pockets red and blue matching the colours of the bag. It has a tab with a button hole this is lined as is the shoulder strap and there is a button to match the bag. Length 9" Width 12" Shoulder Strap 28" PostScript My husband Gerry says to me "Can you block this scarf it rolls into a tube"? So I did. This is it pinned ready to have clean wet tea towels spread on it. I think it will look better!
