I finally finished my mystery WIP--my colorful little flower bag :)
And doesn't it look nice...?
This is how it started out... a few flowers... a rectangle for the bottom and then a few rows in short stitch around it, to start the rounding up the bottom...
It's made of cotton yarn, the type I've used before for my other little bag (Katia's mercerized cotton Bombay and Capri for the single color).
After a few trials I came up with this pattern, which is a sort of a mixture of the larksfoot stitch and a spiked stitch--I made some and tore it appart and started again and tried again... until I was happy with the result! It's really easy, if you'd like I can make (I think!) a small tutorial. But most of the effect is given by the variegated yarn alternating with the plain navy blue yarn.
Then it all seemed to be coming together...
...and I got to like it a lot!
So when I finished I was really happy with the result! And couldn't resist a few pictures by Mom's beautiful flowers...
Still have to line it--I have the fabric for that already but we're away from home and I don't have the sewing machine here... but I'll show you again after I sew in the lining!
(PS -sorry about the lousy pictures again... but I finally found my camera charger, next time I'll show you some decent ones :) these don't do it justice, the colors are so much prettier... )
Dear Marjo from Marjo's cosy corner is sad again, things aren't working too well for her now... if you get a chance, won't you drop her a note to help her feel better...?
