Almost finished crochet bag

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.  photo imagejpg1_zps867a6f77.jpg  photo imagejpg3_zps4b65c3e6.jpg  photo imagejpg5_zpsa94d9ee1.jpg  photo imagejpg2_zpsf96ab6e9.jpg  photo imagejpg4_zpsc987c074.jpg  photo imagejpg6_zpscc599c0e.jpg

Patchwork and squares

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.  photo imagejpg1_zpsbe4e5d9a.jpg 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.  photo imagejpg2_zpsc79b6449.jpg

Shoulder Bag Knitted

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"  photo imagejpg2_zps97cfe8ce.jpg  photo imagejpg1_zps4fd90525.jpg 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! Scarf being blocked. photo imagejpg1_zps3086453d.jpg
