wip's

Have you seen the tutorial on Sara's blog over at paper and string? It's for making these lovely felt purses.
I couldn't stop at one and ended up making four of them!


Here's my wip , after making my crochet blanket i really wanted to make another one, this time it's a bit brighter with red as the main colour.

Wow - that red is really vibrant - I think the finished blanket looks great, Ive been making circle cushions, Ive made 2 so far but they are quite a quick and satisfying project! - Natalie x

I am crocheting something but I am not sure what it is yet! I am more of a Rolph Harris of the crochet world! lol

I think I am aiming towards another bag but hey anything could happen!

Loving your new vibrant squares, and the purses are lovely, I must try some hand stitching...

I am doing a secret easter swap with some people and they are quilters, to say I feel completely out of my league would be an understatement... oh well you live and learn!

Take care

I saw that tutorial - these purses are very sweet. I LOVE your Granny squares. I'm hoping to enter the world of crochet soon but need a bit of tuition. Gina F and Val from Dottycookie have offered it so I'll be in good hands.
