I didn’t follow any pattern for this, just did it free-handed.

Irish Roses (Crochet) – 2

Crocheted Irish roses is an integral part of crochet art, and what can I say about them, they sure give a tough competition to the real ones, so beautiful, so colorful…its a treat to our visionary sense, the only thing that lacks is the fragrance.…..  It is no longer a far fetched dream as the pattern is readily available on the internet…They are so aesthetically designed to please one’s eyes giving them a royal ethnic look, very gorgeous, very elegant for home decor with grandeur, can be used as an embellishment with any accessories…

These Irish roses I crocheted for my next doily (Dublin Garden Doily by Dot Drake) 🙂 …

Cute Rainbow bag/Purse (Crochet)

Beautiful crochet bag that highlights great use of multiple colors with the body in rows of assorted colors and a flower in the center.  It is done with front and back panels featuring rows of lacy stitches of pretty colors joined with shell edging.

I followed a graphical pattern chart (see below) that I found on Google search (think it is from a Japan magazine) for the middle portion of the bag and extended a little bit with few more rows of single crochet to give the bag a rainbow-like appearance.

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.
