He-he. Well, at least I hope it’s magic! If you recall, my last post “Vintage Treasures!”, I posted pics of some lovely thread I found at an estate sale. Well, being the compulsive personality I am, I just dropped everything else I have been doing (or not doing, as the case may be) and picked up one of the spools and got busy.
I was thinking, it wouldn’t make a very ‘wearable’ item. So, I decided to start on a very simple, small handbag! Working in rounds with no joining stitch and single crochet. Here’s what I have so far.
Or, if you prefer, a slide show:
Because I want to incorporate some color, I am going to embellish this new handbag. To this end, I ordered some fabulous linen thread on Etsy today. Aren’t these colors fabulous?! They are coming all the way from Lithuania, so I’ll have to wait a little. Won’t these make some terrific floral embellishments?
Now, I just need some green . . . I think I have some around here . . . somewhere . . .
I’ll keep you posted!
