Welcome to the latest FO Friday. I have a very exciting FO to share with you today. You cannot imagine the joy I felt when I completed this.
The purse!!!! It’s complete!! Like, 100% complete! And (hopefully) delivered to my swapner. Isn’t it STINKIN CUTE?! I have to say, I have not in a long time put as much effort into anything as I did this guy. The pattern is the “Derek Bag” by Che. As I have mentioned previously, the pattern isn’t EXACT, I had to fudge a few things, but it provided a great framework and helped me create this gorgeous piece of work. My swapner mentioned she liked the brown/cream/pink colour combo, so I decided to use that for this project.
Here is where I put the pink (and a little brown and cream). I whipped out my mom’s sewing machine and went to town on it! I even sewed in a little pocket!!! Doesn’t it look SO good?! I am so tickled with the end result, I really never thought I would like a crocheted purse, I thought they looked too homeade but this looks… tres chic 🙂 I really can’t wait for her reaction!
So that’s my FOF for this week, as always, make sure to check out the others here, XO.
