I made thirty jam tarts in a mix of my colours, adding a pastel miracle bead to the centre of each.
I then set about turing each circle into a square by adding two rows of a soft acrylic grey yarn.
After adding a soft blue edge to every square, I then hooked them all together. 12 on the front, 12 on the back and 3 either end. I added a plain grey base in single crochet. I then increased the topof the bag with 5 rows worked in the round, to finish these I (after a quick visit to youtube for a tutorial) added a row of rope or backwards or crab stitch.
I then relocated to my craft room and measured the bag, measured it again, worked out the basic lining shape and set to cuting, pinning and sewing a pretty floral lining for my bag.
So this is where I am right now!
Big work bag NO handles!!!!
My job for this weekend..... making two shoulder straps and sewing them on.
