So. The obvious solution to having one ball of grey acrylics left over is to make a purse.

Anyway.

Here's the outside.
Turn the bag inside out, and you get this:

Thanks for having a look. Cheesy

Thanks for all the kind words. Y'all are making me grin quite a bit. Smiley

xxPunkxxWorksxx, you totally should try. *grins* Definitely easier than 'normal' crochet, imho.

abbynormal, I pretty much made it up as I went along, yeah. Usually do. I'm one of these people who have no idea what they're making until they're finished with it. *grins*

Anyway.

I basically just made one huge gray rectangle (36 st wide, with a 3.5 mm hook, if you must now). Then I crocheted the handle, which was looking like one extremely skinny scarf, sewed the outsides together (if that makes sense) and sewed it on my rectangle.

Then I made the flower, and the skull thing, sewed them onto pins, and...

... voila, purse. Hope that was informative, and such.

"But why don't you scream now?" Alice asked, holding her hands ready to put over her ears again.

"Why, I've done all the screaming already," said the Queen. "What would be the good of having it all over again?"

I got a clearance booklet on tunisian and a hook, but I couldn't understand right away what to do and I haven't picked it up again since I looked it over that first time. 

I hear that it is quicker than regular crochet. Is that true?

Tunisian crochet is like a cross between regular crochet and knitting. Instead of working one stitch at a time, you work one row at a time. You pick up all the stitches along the row, and then "finish" them on the way back. It's a lot easier to understand if you see it being done. I wouldn't say it's quicker than regular crochet... I can do the same square footage at about the same speed with both.
