11  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Re: Flower Button Bag on: February 29, 2008 07:36:43 AM
Great bag, love it!  I would love to try and make one of these.  So do you sew the zipper to the liner before putting the liner in? I'd rather know before I try and figure it out for myself Smiley

Actually what I did was attach the zipper to the bag first (just running stitch), then attach the lining afterward and run the stitch on the top egde of the lining at the same place as the previous zipper stitch. I sew it again using sewing machine (then unpick the running stitch afterward). Difficult to explain, but actually it's very simple process.

This is made from leftover yarns. The pink yarn is sport weight, and the white one is worsted weight, so I split the white yarn into two to make them the same weight.

However, there were still not enough yarns to finish the bag. In the end I just used black acrylic thread (double it). The result, the black seems too strong. To balance the whole thing, I just embroidered some flowers and attached some buttons.

I used black fabric for the lining. Also put a zipper. A Zipper is a must, since I dont want all my things come out if I drop my bag. I want all my things are secured inside.





Thanks for looking!

Do you fellow crocheters ever feel like we are confined to blankets, hats, scarves, and granny squares?  Where is all the pretty stuff the knitters get to make? I just get so frustrated sometimes!!!

Hi, I don't mean to show off, but if you want to see nice and fitted crocheted garment, you can see the example in my blog.

Like everyone said, stunning! This is just the kind of thing I think women want now in crochet patterns. I recently read an article about the crochet designer Lily Chin. She said people think you can't get fitted, luxury looking items with crochet. But she thinks if people tried using thinner threads and investing time in one project at a time (I don't know if I know if I can comply!;) that more drape-y, figure flattering garments could be made. This is just beautiful!

Exactly, it drives me crazy everytime I hear ppl said that crochet is bulking and not flattering at all. Or if they said that the only thing that crochet looks nice is only to make afgan or blanket. They are wrong and this is the example of it!!

OMG! I love this top. It is fabulous and so my style. absolutely fantastic. I do not know how to knit is it hard to learn? I tried once to learn European knitting I started a pair of socks. I still have the one stock..... What is frogging?
 I would love to be able to make something as beautiful as this top. What an inspiration

Good Job!

This is crocheted and not knit.
Frogging is undo or unravel. We said frogging because frog sounds like: rip-it, rip-it, rip-it.
