happy new year to all!! I frequent junk/thrift shops alot! when d.h. and our 4 rugrats travel, we frequent them alot!! that is our fun. the kids like it most of the time cause they can buy alot more stuff for their money. I was fortunate enough to find 5 FULL bolts of this wonderful trim for a song! I thought about selling some of it on ebay, but I am having a hard time wanting to let go!! I am SURE I will come up w/ more things to do with it! any ideas?
thanks for the comments! I used one of those big plastic hooks, I am not sure of the size, but any large foot long hooks would work, and just single crocheted it. It was super easy to work with. I am thinking now about making one out of that much smaller "skinny" garland. that way it wouldn't be so fat and HEAVY!! I LUV the idea of a garland outfit...such fun!
this purse started out in another life, it was a woven magazine purse, but I have several of those around already... so... I covered it w/ this obscene orange and avocado ball trim! I LUV it, my daughter HATES it!! What do you think?
I luv to go to after xmas sales, and I have been crocheting alot this winter, so when I spied xmas garland on sale.... I thought why not crochet a purse?!! I bought the gold/white color and used a large hook and crocheted myself a purse in no time!! I am still thinking about what kind of handle to make... debating on gold chain or running the garland thru tubing. **update- the purse is HEAVY!! plus I need to SHAVE the inside so I can FIND my junk!! LOL!!
