Some of you may remember my Pay it Forward Exchange. Well I created a lovely green summer hat for WesnLani’s chemo angel recipient, and I finished my second craft, a lovely black and shiny gold and silver evening bag for Mandy over at Not Another Mom Blog. I had a lot of fun creating this bag. I crocheted it out of 100% cotton yarn, with a sparkly deco yarn trim, lined it with a thick sparkly felt lining, and crocheted a clasp closure so it’s contents won’t spill easily out of it.
Here is the bag itself:
Here is the handcrafted enclosure:
It was a great deal of fun making this. It may be the fanciest one I have made yet. I think I may use this pattern again for christmas gifts.
Thanks for everyone who participated! I am sending the gifts out Monday.
