Bright & Colorful Crocheted Bag

A kaleidoscope of bright colors is the simplest way to liven up a casual outfit.Β  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.Β  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 πŸ™‚ …hope you all agree with me…

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 πŸ™‚ …

 

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

Bright Little Crochet Flower

Most of the time I use lighter shades of colors to crochet flowers…so this time thought of doing one in bright colors to see if it changes my mind and it indeed did πŸ™‚ …I liked the outcome and felt the bright colors made it more attractive… maybe I should crochet flowers in bright colors too :)…I think it will go well with any fashion accessories like dresses, hairband, bags, purse, ornamental hangings etc. πŸ™‚ …

My son helped me in taking pictures πŸ™‚ …it was his idea to take photos of it with the butterflies πŸ™‚ …
