Happy Monday everyone!
I am so excited to show you my second crocheted container I made with Lion Brand Fettuccini Yarn on the bottom and Wool-Ease Thick & Quick for the body of the basket.
Last Monday I showed you my round basket project, and today I have a new one to share!
I made an oval project bag that is so fabulous!
I even learned how to hand sew a zipper into it with this tutorial which was the icing on the cake so to speak that really made this my new favorite bag to grab and go! :)
It holds a ton, is super durable and strong, and the perfect shape to either hold on my lap in the car or tuck under my arm on the way out the door!
R-Chee is a bit disappointed that it is not his new doggie bag to hold his lunches!
I think he thought I was making him a giant bread basket!
Here it is before I sewed the zipper in!
... and here it is...
all zipped up!
My last embellishment was to add the blueberry bobbles that I crocheted with fingering weight wool yarn.
Yay! That was FUN!
I love making up patterns as I go sometimes!
I am always so pleasantly surprised at the end because I was not really sure what I was making when I started!
I love how this one evolved, and that I learned how to add a zipper to any bag!
It was so easy to do!
I guess because I am such a beginner sewer, I was always so intimidated by just the thought of it.
I will definitely do that again!
I am almost done with it and cannot wait to show it to you in the coming weeks!
R-Chee is still waiting for his fresh baked bread!
I guess I had better go and bake him some dog cookies before I lose my trusty assistant to an official puggy strike! :)
What FUN things are you doing this week?
Please leave us a note and let us know!
We cannot wait to hear all about them!
Melissa & R-Chee
