Interlocking Crochet purse

Hello all

Hope all r doing well.  I am a little busy since my kids r at home and they will be back to school on April 2nd. Most of the time I am in the kitchen doing cooking, cleaning.  It's hot here now and the interest for stitching is low.  Whenever I get time I am picking up my crochet hook and yarn.  And this purse is born. 

Long back I bought the Interlocking crochet book.  Already I have tried some patterns from that book.  It is an excellent source for those who want to try interlocking crochet.  This time I have crocheted the interlocking zig zag pattern and it came out perfect. 

I have attached a zipper and  managed to attach a lining also.  This time the zipper part came out perfect.  I have used a local acrylic yarn with 4mm hook.  Now over to the purse.





It has enough room for holding a cell phone, keys, pens and money.  I am very happy that it have turned well.  It took me two evenings to complete this.  I will be doing more purses for our church sale.

I have completed a crochet bag.  The body part is completed.  I have to attach a zipper, lining and a strap.  This part is taking time and I am lazy to do that.  And the next cross stitch fairy is also in the hoop.  

In my next post I will be coming up with the cross stitch fairy.  So do watch my space.  Have a happy time with hooks and yarns.

EASTER BLESSINGS TO ALL THOSE WHO CELEBRATE EASTER.

Oh I'm late

Hello all,

I am late to show you my little fairy which I have stitched for the smalls SAL.  Somehow I was feeling lazy to do a blog post.  I overcame my laziness today and I am ready to show you my little fairy for last month.



I have completed 7 fairies so far.  Only 5 more to go.  Also, I have started to crochet a blanket in the Jan 15th of this year.  I have started it in a plan of doing one square per day. As per the plan it is going on.  Some days I used to do more than one square.  And so far I have completed 60 squares.  



In my next post I will be posting the new design for this month.  Till then, Happy crocheting.
