Our Creative Space...

You saw the  knitting of the body of this bag a long time ago. Here is it, being blocked after all the crocheted carnations have been sewn on it.

Than the fluffy interfacing and the lining were sewn in by hand. And finally the bag is given shape by crocheting it in a certain way.

Knitted handles and a crocheted button finish it.

The bag is now ready, waiting for the first sunny day to take pictures. The colors are not washed out in real life. It is funny that although I can figure in advance all the work involved, I cannot figure the time that it shall cost me. I guess that I dream that I am a lot faster than I am!
All by all, probably eighty hours of work went in this bag. We are pricing it in the $300 region and hoping that the buyer will appreciate the labor and the bargain!
