Green Bag


Now that the bag has been received by its lovely recipient I can post about it here. My dear friend Stacy is celebrating her birthday today, and I crocheted this bag for her as a gift. It was such a delight to crochet, and I really like the result! I used a pattern by Jen at The Fabled Needle. Great pattern and easy to follow! I used Lion Brand Woolease in Avocado to make this bag.

I lined it using a print from Denyse Schmidt's fabric line created for JoAnn fabrics. I couldn't resist the vintage-y feel of the fabric!
Now I'm thinking about making a bag for me!

I've created some appliqued wall decor in a few designs for the shop. I do love how they turned out! Hopefully I'll get them listed tonight.

And the best score of the week was this fabulous basket I found while thrifting! It is perfect for displaying my new creations but also such a nice basket. :)
Have a great weekend peeps! What are you excited about lately?
