my creative space ...

... includes more of this and another one of these ...


The first one was made and bundled off in such a hurry that I didn't notice the little diamond it makes at the back!  I've crocheted a crab stitch edging on this one, which is just single crochets backwards (going from left to right).


And finishing off those motif projects ...


A little purse, to gift to someone, for little things, coins, bits and bobs one doesn't want to lose at the bottom of a handbag.



This was a join-as-you-go motif.  Here's the pattern.



But it needed a lining that took longer than the lining for the Hex bag!

I made me a bookmark too!  But I think it would work well on a cuff or even as a bracelet.  

What do you think?

And of course, more creative spaces here!

Such lovely crochet goodness!! Love how you made up the little lined purse - it really is beautiful. May just need to have a go myself ....

I love it all! Crocheting all those little, quick projects is so addictive. I think the bookmark would make a gorgeous bracelet.

That little bag is lovely isn't it! I have a small crochet bag with a shoulder strap but it is getting old and due to be replaced soon. Know I know where to look for the replacement :-)I will have to learn how to sew a liner in! Love the jacket and the bookmark too. I have made 3 of those jackets now and am onto my fourth. They make great presents....so quick! How are you finding the creative challenge? I was going to do it but it had started before I got myself organised. I am going to read all the blogs one weekend.

I love the idea of a bracelt, I think I will give it a go although I have never done anything other than a granny square!

Oh...Ive just read thru stack of your posts..I was amazed by the crochet and the rainbow of colour and then I found this one! The colour of this wee coin bag (which I would never be able to use ad it is too lovely) is absolutely lovely. One day I will learn to crochet, Thanks for the inspiration. Peta
