My first handbag fob!
It has been awhile and I should be correcting homework but .....
I have been doodling in crochet.
I have another make on the hook,a shawl, but I am finding it difficult to concentrate on something big!
I turned to a bit of doodling...a small make so I could pop it into my bag and do a little bit to it during the breaks between classes.
Usually the summer isn't very busy for me but as explained in my last post I could not have holidays this year. Even so, I thought I wouldn't have a lot of work but I was wrong. I have three contracts this summer.
Getting back to my handbag fob.
I have a bag I like very much but it has become quite tatty. I washed it and repaired the tears and cut up an iron on trouser patch to iron on over the holes in the corners of my bag . It looks much better but it still had a bit of a faded look to it so I made up this fob to give it a little bit of colour and sparkle!
No pattern! A bit of spare wool,a round or two of popcorn stitches and a few beads here and there.
I feel much better now I have finally finished one of my makes.
I love your fob! It's so pretty and elegant.ReplyDelete

It's so pretty Amanda so much beaded detail you should make those to sell! small things are the way to go for me too this Summer because then I still get that feeling of achieving something even if it is small. Take care xxxReplyDelete
