Hi peeps, I hope that you’re all doing well. 😊
Thank you all for your interest in my last blog post about a newsletter. I’ve decided not to start one at this time because of lack of interest but let’s see what the new year will bring!
For this blog post, I decided to share with you some of my recent craft projects. I used to do this before, but I haven’t shared anything in ages so it’s time to get back to sharing them.
I’ve made quite a few granny squares in the past, and I planned to make a top with them but other tops I’ve made haven’t turn out fit-wise, as they are often too big, baggy, and heavy. So, this time, I decided to make a granny square bag with them instead.
I’ve made a great start in getting it going, I have the front and back panels all joined up and I’m in the middle of making the gusset, which I hope to finish before the end of the year. The handles are finished so I just need to sew a lining into it then it will be completed.
Sticking with the crochet theme, I also made a crochet hook case which I really like. I used some musical themed fabric and it was my first time sewing with both mesh and vinyl, it turned out great.
The final bag-themed projects are my drawstring and tote bags I’ve been making. These are great gift bags, or they are ideal for keeping craft wip’s in. I use the robin drawstring bag to hold all the bits and pieces for my frog family.
Once I have knitted the pieces, I put them in the bag then seal it closed so they cannot escape! I really dislike it when I know I’ve knitted something but cannot find it because it’s fallen somewhere, or I’ve misplaced it. It’s so annoying, lol, but this drawstring bag solves those problems.
Thanks for reading!
