In browsing blogs and Ravelry last night, I was inspired by several bread bag projects I came across. Jason was up late working (again), so I grabbed some bread bags from my already-been-washed pile so I could stay up and keep him company without falling asleep. (I also have a to-be-washed pile of bread bags, and a hanger over the washing machine with washed ones that were drip dried there. We’re in plastic overload here.) I decided to go for something small, and a wristlet was the first thing that came to mind. I had it about 75% crocheted last night, and I finished it up this morning. Not content to wait until the thrift shops were open to find the perfect fabric for lining, I cut up an old t-shirt I never liked anyway and hit the fabric & button stashes. Et voila!
Bebe was born. The lining is sewn, but I haven’t attached it or the handle. I’m going to hit Joann’s later in the week and grab a zipper. (Wish me luck on that one…I haven’t inserted a zipper in almost twenty years, and I was none too confident in my skills back then. And I’ve never done a zipper in a bag! Thank goodness for online tutorials.)
This will be up for sale when I get my etsy shop online. If you’d like to purchase it before then, however, I won’t argue. 🙂
