Unfinished Projects

I have entirely too many unfinished projects. Here are two bags that I finished crocheting and knitting awhile ago. Both projects were really easy to do though the moss stitch gusset on the Brea took forever. The linings are pinned but need to be sewed in and then the bags need assembling. One of these days!

This is the Creole Bag from Berroco.
Yarn: Cascade Yarns 128 Tweed

Brea Bag from Berroco.
Yarn: Brown Sheep Cotton Fleece (double stranded)

The handles and buttons I picked up at M&J Trimming in Manhattan. If you're ever in the city, check this place out. They carry some really nice accessories.

Bags, Bags, Bags

This purple Booga Bag was knitted with some unnamed wool that I picked up at Stitches East. To save time, I crocheted the cord.

I've been wanting to try my hand at tunisian crochet. So I decided to give it a go by crocheting this entrelac bag. I got a copy of Carolyn Christmas' Easy Tunisian Crochet booklet from eBay awhile ago and used the technique to do this bag. The yarn is Elann's Peruvian Highland Wool. I knitted two i-cords for the handles.

This tote was based on this Lion Brand Pattern. I crocheted the bag using Paton's Classic Wool and Knit Picks Wool of the Andes.
