swapped my needle for a hook

044

This week I traded my needle for a hook and made a little summer purse.  The pattern for the bag is from Alice at Future Girl.  I used cotton yarn and then added a flower for fun. 

Crochet is so relaxing.

Then I swapped back to a needle to sew a lining inside.  We are having strange Spring weather here…so this fabric helps with feeling Spring.

And speaking of swaps…

My squares for Karen’s Red and White Swap are ready for the mailman. 

 

peek a boo

I notice both of my daughter’s baby pictures were playing peek-a-boo with me while taking photos of the bag.  So fun and such a day brightener!

Hope your day is bright and happy too!

Love the bag! that's one of my favorite variegated yarns in the cotton...nice color combination. Pretty lining too!

I have yet to cut up my red and white fabric...still on my to-do list! I like yours and I'm looking forward to seeing the variety of blocks we get from this one!

Great job on the purse, it's just as cute as it can be, the flower is the perfect final touch.
