Ferris Wheel Flower

6-Petal Flower

Inside lining

This past weekend I made the In Bloom purse as a quick project with leftovers from other items - Caron Simply Soft yarn (I bought too much yarn at the time!).  Turned out cute, although I still want to get a small clasp or button to keep it shut.  I lined the bag with fabric, ironed into shape and hand-stitched in place.  I decided to put a different flower on each side to liven it up, although the 6-Petal flower has become a favorite of mine. 

My time & cost facts:

I logged my time, and in total this took 5.42 hours - breakdown as follows -
Handle row 1 through body row 7 - 46 minutes
Body row 8-29 - 75 minutes
Body row 30-33, all of handle 2 - 49 minutes
Adding fabric lining - 75 minutes
2 flower pins - 80 minutes

I used 2.5 oz of yarn for the bag, at a cost of $0.76 per oz = $1.90
Fabric - estimated at 1/3 of what I originally bought for $2 = $0.67
Yarn for pins - 0.4 oz at a cost of $0.76 per oz = $0.30
Total cost = $2.86

Those are darling!!  What a great idea that doesn't take too much yarn.  Did you make your own pattern, too?  Very nicely done.

this is lush - so cute. im mid-making one at the moment and was worrying about my hdc stitches. when you work the row, they look like the V sits at the front but having looked online, i am doing it right - i think! the V sits more to the back of the top right...i think! oh well, it looks like its ok. will try and post some pics when done :-)
