woo-hoo! I have a finished object!
Admittedly it only needed about 30 minutes of work to finish off... but now it is done... and OUT of the red suitcase.
It's another variation of the easy peasy crochet bag. Click here for bag tutorial.
I worked 10 rounds using three different strands of yarn, then turned the bag inside out. Worked 5 rounds using three strands of the same colour, then turned the bag inside out again. Switched back to the three different strands and worked 3 rounds. Then turned the bag inside out for a final time and added the trim.
The bag has been lined with some scrap fabric. Click here for lining tutorial.
I then cut four small hearts from an old felted jumper, embroidered a blanket stitch around the edges of each, and assembled them to look like a flower. Added a recycled button to the centre. Also added some running stitch detail around the bag, using two strands of dark brown yarn, to match the trim.
