Lots of Little Bags

Apart from the fact that the days of utter muggyness  are finally over, and it was fun to go out again, our weekend was particularly successful with a trip to Big Lots and finding lots of cheap yarn.  I found some lovely multicolored stuff and matching yellow and whipped up a bunch of little bags.   I wanted to try different stitches from the book:  The Complete Photo Guide to Crochet by Margaret Hubert, which I absolutely adore.  Get it from Amazon, the price has just been reduced to $16.

All the bags are done in a different pattern.

The multicolored bag on the left with the shoulder strap and crocheted white flower, is finished and the crochet stitch almost looks like bargello embroidery.  It is much less difficult than it looks.  I used both the yellow and multicolored yarn alternately.  The other multicolored ones are WIPs, as are the two yellow ones.  The top yellow one is in a very thick sturdy stitch.  I love its texture and have to think of making something special of it, with embellishments.  Stay tuned!
