I am in love with this handbag. It's made from dark denim arran wool and I love it.

the clasp was made from what I had available. an old key, some beads, some little metal bells and a big keyring.

open clasp

this pic aslo show the cable-style FPSC stitchwork. (front post single crochet).

finally, here's how I did it. it's a flat, double trapezoid shape to start with using simple 1 stitch decreases from top to base, then 1 stitch increases from base to top again.

Lovely bag! The clasp is beautiful, and I think for the first time I have understood how these cables are being done. Thanks!

Ruby, it was guesswork on my part lol! I don't know how they're "really" done, but fpdc and fpsc is how I do them.

LOL!  This bag takes me right back to 1987.  You did a nice job on it!

No more blog + no more facebook = more time for crafting!
