Festival Bag

Hi,

      I was having a little think about my next project and decided that I really needed a bit of colour for the next thing I would tackle.  By colour, I mean bright and bold!  So thinking about this made me think Summer and of the festival season.  So this lead me to come up with an idea for making a festival themed bag.

     I had a little look through my stash of wool and came up with these colours. (I later added a purple too!)


Then I went on to use a granny spike stitch using these colours to create the main body of the bag.




Following this, I folded it over and created an overlap for the opening and then stitched the sides together.



Once this was completed, I added tassels at the bottom of the bag with the coloured wool to create a lovely rainbow fringing effect.




Next I used a piece of muslin to create a simple lining and then sewed this securely into the inner of the bag.



After this, I began to crochet a multicoloured strap and edged it with red.



Finally, I added a lovely large button and a small crocheted loop to close the bag.



Then "Ta-dah!"   All done!  I really love this bag and it makes me very summery.  Take a look on my Etsy shop if you would like one.




Bye for now
