Hello everybody! Happy Wednesday! For Granny Square Day, here's a little more on the Green Bag front. All ends have now been woven in (yay!), and handles attached as you saw last week. About that, some of you have asked about the tension of the handles on the crochet loops I attached them to and if the loops might not get stretched over time. That's a good question. I suppose some stretch is inevitable, but the loops might be strengthened thanks to a bit of yarn woven through the stitches. I'll let you know how this works out.
Today's focus is on buttons and buttonholes. I forgot to mention it last week, but when I joined the squares with the pink yarn, I made a simple buttonhole with six chains.
So the next logical step, obviously, was that of button sewing. I went for cute and pink, with contrasting green yarn to keep with the general look:
I love these flowery wooden buttons. I've got a small collection of them and have used them as props for blog photos. I was actually almost sad that I finally used one. No more pretty pictures with this one!
And finally for this week, I managed to cut the fabric for the lining and a pocket:
This lovely fabric has a bit of a history which I intend to share with you in an upcoming post.
In the meantime, go have a look at Jijihook's for a whole lot more of grannies.
Thanks for reading and take care!
