Crochet Crazy

blue green cat purseI think I’ll start this blogging experience by posting some pics of my recent crocheting obsession. No real patterns used, just making it up as I go along. I read some catpurse-blue-green-closeup.jpgstitch and pattern info and let it develop into my own thing. I embroidered one of my favorite cat drawings onto the front of this bag with a little help from some felt for the mouth and nose. I have created this big mouth cat in paper mache for years and due to my crochet addiction, I decided to introduce his mouth to yarn and felt. I’ve been working on some fabric collages featuring his cute kitty self and will be posting pics soon.

Same round shape, just approached catpurse-orange-pink-idea.jpga little differently. I was doodling in Photoshop and sketched an idea catpurse-orange-pink-lining.jpgfor her present and it evolved into this cute catpurse-orange-pink-closeup.jpgbag. Plus I had to reach into my stash of funky fabric and adorn the little purse with the most perfect kitty fabric. The blue-green bag has fun, vintage fabric lining that I haven’t photographed yet.
