i made a purse for my friend brittany last year, but i just now found the pics, and im also pretty new to craftster, this is the second thing ive posted.
ive been using grocery bags to crochet with for quite a while. i really love working with the plastic, its super versatile, and is awesome for making baskets or purses. making the yarn is pretty time consuming, although if you have a couple of friends, you can knock some out pretty quickly, say, an afternoon.
lemme know if we need a tutorial on how i make my yarn.
everyone, meet ninja. hes cute. he likes to see what i do. and sit on my head. (i really like the checkerboard pattern that i used for under the flap)
and here you can see it with the flap closed. you can also sorta see the way i crocheted the strap, using the black as a highlight chain stitch.
the last time i made myself a purse, it seriously lasted about 3 or 4 years of continuous use.
