I 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 stitch 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.
But meanwhile on the crochet theme, here’s another cat purse that I made for my sister’s birthday in January. Same round shape, just approached a little differently. I was doodling in Photoshop and sketched an idea for her present and it evolved into this cute bag. 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.
