Bag Brag

Another Crochet student of mine has finished her it is time to Brag!! Angela finished her oversized bag in record time. She simplified the pattern on her own. Instead of two front, two back and one bottom panel, She made a front and a back and incorporated the two side panels into the bottom panel. She was able to save a few steps as she was joining the pieces together. I love the colors! Angela is super creative and makes beautiful quilts. She has also taken my knitting classes....she is one multi-talented lady!!

Everything But The Kitchen Sink Bag!!

As a crochet and knit instructor I just love getting to see the completed projects of my students.

I want to take a few minutes and brag on one of my students, Stephanie. She made this wonderful crocheted bag with a double strand of cotton yarn. I believe it was made in seven separate crocheted pieces that she joined together. It is one big bag that will hold everything but the kitchen sink....maybe even that too if you just squish a little. I love the tassels she made to individualize her bag. She added a bit of bling and some flip flops which I found out she is a bit partial to. Stephanie is a busy lady...Wife, Mother, Sister, full-time teacher, and friend. Despite all her obligations she finds time for her "Crochet Therapy."....Way to go Steph!!
