Bright & Colorful Crocheted Bag

A kaleidoscope of bright colors is the simplest way to liven up a casual outfit.  Add a gorgeous handcrafted bag in bright pink, blue, green, red, & yellow :)…

This one I started as a scrap yarn project rug/mat (see my previous post https://crochetshelters.wordpress.com/2014/06/03/wip-scrap-yarn-rugmat-crochet/)

I started having second thoughts as the work progressed.  It was looking so pretty and beautiful, I didn’t have the mind to use it as a rug for people to step on it or as a mat..so converted it into a beautiful bag 🙂 …hope you all agree with me…

Make granny squares of your choice 🙂 …

Bag Handles

I did a strip consisting of sc’s (single crochet) with a spike stitch after 7 sc’s of required length, twisted it to look like a rope, and attached it to the bag :)…

 

For closure, you can add a zipper or a button closure with a loop of your choice, and your bag is ready 🙂 …

 

For more decorations, you can have pompoms or balls or tear drops, or flowers or leaves hanging from the handles 🙂 …

WIP: Scrap Yarn Rug/Mat/Throw (Crochet)

Whenever I see something colorful in the art/craft exhibitions, I always think I should use my scrap yarn to make this…and, finally I started to make two rugs/mats, a round one with acrylic wool and another a rectangular one with a mixture of cotton, wool, and nylon yarns.

These kind of things in addition to adding colors to the room, creates a whole of ethnic charm and gives the room a lively atmosphere.
