Jordy sent me a photo of a bag she wanted crocheted (The original bag/photo is below but I am sorry I dont have the original source) I quite like the original bag and its colourings and thought it was a simple enough design that I could manage it. Then she told me she wanted it in black. Cringe. I can not think of a worse colour to crochet with! My eyesight is not the greatest and black does not bode well with night time crocheting. So this bag making event has strictly been limited to day time efforts. I started this the day before we went to Warrnambool so that I would have a project to do in the car . Several weeks later we are done.
The base of the bag is done in half treble, the sides in treble. The strap is double thickness so it doesn't cut into the shoulder when being worn. All in all not a bad effort and most of all Jordy likes it!
Threw a Frankenstein comment in for good measure! Hmmm
