It’s taken the best part of about three weeks in between work and everything else, but I’ve finally finished my first crocheted bag.
I’m really happy with it – it’s been a good learning process and for a first attempt at making this kind of thing, it’s not bad at all. Lining it was good fun – it was about time I tested out my sewing skills again. I used my little sewing machine to stitch some of the pieces of the lining together but much of it is hand sewn – including the zip pocket and the stitching actually holding the lining and the bag together. I love the fabric of the lining and there’s plenty left for other things.
Now I get to enjoy one of the best things about finishing a crochet project… choosing what to create next.
