Puff Flower Crochet Bag


Sometimes there gets an idea into the crafty head...

It stays there, getting bigger and bigger...

Until you HAVE to have a go at it..

The idea challenges you, daunts you, teases you and commands you...

You have to drop everything, pick up your hook and yarn scraps...

Hook away at it :)


Browsing thru Pinterest i found THIS and had to try it out..I saw this bag and i had to have a go..I combined the flowers from this bag with this gem of idea from Pierrot Yarns HERE.

The puff flowers are from Mollie Makes can be found HERE.

Altered it to suit my needs a bit..
So you can see, a real lot of mix and match to come up with something i really wanted :)


Stitched it all up to form a small blanket... Don't you think this would have looked cute as a little doll's blanket?

Lined it before making it all come together..


Added a bit of crochet lace to increase the girlie, handmade feel a bit..





And here is my proud, little, cute, handy, girlie, vintage-y, unique bag...

Ta-daaah!!!

Normally when i go out for small errands, pick up my girl from her school, or take the little man out to park in my apartment the only things i carry are my wallet, my house keys and my phone. These cannot all go into my jeans pocket, plus it is tooo hot here to wear jeans now!

So you can see, these things fit cozily into my new bag.


You guys want to have a look at my phone cover? He he he... Love the Russian dolls, aren't they too cute:)

A magnetic button for added cohesive-ness..


My (un)willing model.. She wanted to play with her brother's engineering kit.


 That's it she said and off she ran..


My heart sings tra-la-la-la-la...
When ever i look at my bag!!



Hope you are having a fab weekend and do write in as i love reading your sweet words :)
Love...

  15. I just love your gorgeous puffy bag. I'm mad about bags and have more than I need but just can't resist this kind of bag. The huge granny bag was the start of it and now I make bags in fabric, knitting and crochet. Hooked is the word I use for my habit! hahahahah! Take care and have a great week! Lu x
