Maybe you remember this post from November about my playing with 3D crochet. I did 24 squares and they have been lying here in a basket. Now I put them together and made a bag out of them, because I found these handles at a flea market. Put a Japanese cotton fabric in as lining.
Crocheted moon landscape
Finished bag. Approx 30 x 25 cm (12" x 10").
It's based on a standard (a bit "tweaked" & changed) granny square.
Japanese printed cotton fabric lining.
Not my colors though.... I need something extra colorful for spring. This is more suitable for the fall/winter collection.
Got some questions how I made this.
So this i my attempt to explain in English - bear with me:)
First & second row is crocheted with what we call velvet yarn. Third row some kind of Angora mega hairy yarn and the last row ordinary wool yarn.
To achieve the bulky effect and keep the work square I did as follows:
With velvet yarn I crocheted 5 double crochet in a group and took the hook out of the last chain. Then put the hook trough the top-chain of the groups first double crochet and put the last chain on the hook again. Pulled the yarn through it all to bind the top of all 5 of the double crochet's tight together.
Hope it made some sense :)
