Hello, my lovelies! Do you remember the little gift bags I've been making of late? This one, this one, this one and this one? Oh, and this one, of course, the first ever?
Well, I am definitely on a roll with those, as I have just finished one and have another one in the making. The one that I have just finished is not technically a gift bag, since it's simply for me, to carry, er... women's necessities. Ahem.
Anyhoo, it is made with a darling of a yarn, which I once bought whilst visiting a friend in Bordeaux in the spring of 2012. Lang Jawoll Magic sock yarn, in a colourway that I am pretty sure has now been discontinued, sadly. I used the very last bit of it for this project, and even had to frog a couple of other tidbits to be able to finish it. The rest of it I used for another project, which I hope to blog about soon(ish).
Shall we do a bit of ta-dah, then? Here goes... TA-DAH!
This bag, as most of the others, was worked in rounds of double crochet stitches based on an initial chain of 16. Once I got to the desired height, I worked a round of half trebles, ch1, and then went on to do the ruffling, with the usual 2 dc in dc from previous round for, I think, 4 consecutive rounds. I then whipped up a quick chain for the pull string and decorated it with those cute stars and beads.
And voilà! A delightful little bag all to myself. I love how the variegated yarn turned out on this one, and how the pinkish hues of the ruffled top make it look even more like a flower.
And I love the fact that the beads I found echo the colourway of the yarn so effortlessly. Such pretty little things...
That's all for this one, peeps. I would love to hear what you think! I will definitely write a detailed tutorial for this one, once I am done with the Blanket tutorial, currently on the way.
In the meantime, thanks for reading! :)
