backpacking

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

Yesterday, this ...

became this ...

and then this...
A mini backpack for dd9 to take on a school trip.

Then, this ...

became ...

and then ...


and finally...


Another mini backpack but this time for dd7!

I loved crocheting the hexagons. I used Lucy's pattern and really enjoyed it. I made the half hexes up myself to get the rectangular shape. Putting the bag together was a little fiddly but I couldn't stop stroking the hexagons and thinking, "What a lovely blanket these would make!" A fair bit of weaving in was needed with this one.


I HATE weaving in ends!
Both bags have drawstring handles so they have eyelet rows at the tops. And both girls are happy with their bags. Now the question is: Should the next big project be grannies or hexagons?

But first, I need to go and get some goodies together for a bake sale.

They're both lovely - I especially like the hexagons though. Great idea!

Thanks so much ladies! And it's nice to see you here Rebecca and Henia! As always the same goes to you Rainbow, but why have your hexagons come out curly? Let's see ... what hook size and yarn are you using? Did you remember to do the round of chains (round 4)? I ask that because I kept forgetting!!!
