I won a drawing for a free pattern on NexStitch’s facebook page. Here is my pick: NexStitch™ Handbag Crochet Patterns : Rhiannon Tote Crochet Pattern.
I love the braided handle.
After I’ve recovered from holiday shopping, I’m going back for the Montauk bag pattern.
They will be having another drawing today, so go like their page & look out for today’s question!
Here is another pattern I had previously posted to Craftster & I also posted it to Ravelry, but I can’t find it there. I think that’s why I never got into Ravelry so much. I had trouble finding stuff, especially projects I had uploaded. Could have been user-error though:)
Little Ruffled Girly-Girl Purse
This is the first pattern I ever wrote. It is for felted bag that was crocheted. I have since learned felting something that has been knitted or crocheted first is actually called ‘fulling’, but everyone just uses felting for it, so to do otherwise makes me feel like a pretentious nerd. Plus, when you say fulling no one knows what you’re talking about.
This bag was a Christmas present for my sister, so I named it after her. The links for the photos to where this was originally posted five years ago are all broken now, so I’m going to try & get them back in the right order^_^
I think the camera I was using when I took these was a free gift with purchase, so you may need to over look some of the photo quality. Not to mention the over zealousness of the details in my pattern. I had recently discovered Craftster & all the wonderful tutorials people posted on there, & I was still rather new to crochet so writing this in a way that would be clear even for someone who had never heard of crochet was all the rage for me. It was all so new & exciting!!! I wanted to be sure no one had a problem following my directions.
Gentle comments & critiques are welcome, & if anyone makes this I would love to see how it turns out.
