Two Little Bags...

Here are a couple of bags I have made since the weekend - the blue one should really be called the 'Waiting for the Repairman' bag as I managed the bulk of it while bored out of my skull waiting for someone to repair our hot water boiler yesterday!

The blue bag is knitted using a rag yarn, and trimmed with my home-made rag yarn in a pink flowery print, with a plaited handle and a little fabric rosette with a vintage mother-of pearl button in the centre. I'm very pleased with it - I don't normally do cute, but this is quite cute!
The black bag is crocheted in black raffia, and trimmed with a crochet flower, button in the centre, and stalk and leaves embroidered on. Very subtle decoration which shows up better in real life - the camera couldn't cope with the blackness! Both bags £10 each + p&p

It's lovely to be getting on with my own creations again - I even managed to sort out my mess of beads yesterday and prepare some pretty pebbles for a necklace I've been commissioned to make. I don't think I'll be taking on any further knitting for anyone else - the $*^%! skating dress cost me £6 to send yesterday - take that out of what they will pay me and there's not much left....
