Happy Saturday Everyone,
I have had fun, busy week. I finished my jacket and
I am almost all packed for my trip. In addition to those
two things I have had a really nice e-mail from Lucy.
Lucy shared her black bag with us a few days ago
and gave me her permission to use it on my blog.
After Lucy, saw the blog , she e-mailed me the following ;
Thank you, Margaret. It is my pleasure to share the
black purse with
you. I feel a bit like my second grade
students when I show off my work to you, my "teacher".
Your patterns turn out so nicely, I just have
Thank you Lucy, I cannot think of a nicer compliment!
After all the excitement of the crochet-along with the
8 Pocket Tote from my book HOOKED BAGS, and
the flurry of excitement about free form, after my
posting about my new jacket -
I thought that I would show a little diagram of how to make a
free form bag. Making a bag in this way would be an easy
way to start on free form. Trying the method on a small item,
allows you to test the waters, see if you like it, before starting
on a larger project.
This is a diagram that I use in my workshops and it
is helpful to students. Making little pieces of knit and/or
crochet, and sewing them to a base or lining, is the
easiest way to begin free forming.
More on this later
Have a great day
