The bunny has learnt a new craft this week and is completley hooked! (I am sorry about the pun!) I have learnt how to crochet. It is something I have been threatening to do for a while and I am very proud to say that I taught myself the basic single stitch. My mum showed me how to double and triple stitch and since then I haven't stopped. I have 'crochet fingers' and I'm sure I'm acquiring a new callous, which I will bear with pride! My first mini project is going to be a Mother's Day gift for my mother in law and, once complete, I will proudly post it on here.
At last I have finished my bag. This has been inspired by a project in the wonderful Simply Homemade magazine. It has been made from an old pair of jeans with some fabulous purple and turquoise spotty fabric. I initially intended it to be a project bag, however, when it was done I loved it so much that I wanted to use it as a handbag. Since this picture was taken I have added a flap to the bag that fastens at the back so as not to spoil the bow detail at the front. I love it!
