Here is my new bag that evolved from my crochet hook. I first bought the recycled sari silk yarn from tokyo at xmas and knit little squares with it. Not quite knowing what to do with it next I bought a couple of balls of wool from the charity shop and crocheted round the edges of the squares. Then still unsure what it was going to be I started to join the squares together. Needing some more fun I crocheted into the join row doing 3 sts per chain and created a ruffle. I then decided a bag would be a good idea and worked it togther to form the main part of the bag. Using two 'unruffled squares' I attached two rings (that were covered with crochet) that I found when my daughter bought two scarves (they were used to hang them on rails) I then attched some nylon webbing (found in our works storecupboard) for the strap. I lined it with some yellow gingham and an inside pocket.Buttons and charms finished it off and I am mighty pleased with it! Hope you like it too.
