Sooo...I've been designing and creating purses for a while now and am finally putting an update. I really love mixing and matching various colors to make beautiful combinations. So far, I've been using only Patons Classic Merino Wool. I have used Joann's Sensations Kashmira yarn and actually really liked that one, as well.
What I've learned is that crocheting is the easy part. Lining the bag, however.... argh. However, since I want these babies to look as beautiful as possible, and since I coerced my dear hubby to buy me a sewing machine last Christmas, I decided to put it to good use. (I'll post/rant about that p.o.shaving cream later....the machine...not my hubby...)
So, without further ado, here are the bags from the Gege collection thus far.
This bag is the very first one I created. I call it Johnny Five- and it's ALIVE! Ha! I slay me.
It's the key to unlocking my heretofore unknown bag-making, dare I say...oh I will... g.e.n.i.o.u.s. (Yes folks- the best quality of mine, and I have many good ones, is my humility. I'm very proud at how humble I am. And my spelling. I spell real good.) I added an interior pocket which was added pre-felting, so it is part of the entire purse fabric. This will be for sale on my etsy site....once I set that up. Hee.
This next one, I made for my sister. I really love the colors and the size of this one. There is an interior pocket, as well, and also a magnetic clasp to keep all the contents safe and secure. (This one won't be for sale....but her purse might be. Ha! Just kidding...the purse definitely won't be.)
This next one is the PGP bag- Purple, Green, Pink.
This one is actually not completed yet...I still need to line it and add a magnetic clasp. But, since I'm posting all my preciouses (yes, that's a word...just ask Gollum), I'm adding this one and will post an updated pic with the lining later this week.
Quick! Action shot! Whoosh!
These are the three soft handled bags that I've made. I'll make more since I like them, but I also really like the wooden handled ones, as well. My next post will showcase those ones. Peace out and word to your mother! (Oh yes, I'm sooo down with the homies. We go rolling often.)
