Way side…………..

I am going to be honest and say this……I have neglected this page too much.  I need to set a goal to post at least one thing a week, if not more.  Whether it be crochet related or not.  I am a huge crafter of many talents but my main talent lies with crochet and clay work.

I would love to get into refinishing furniture to go into my home but I don’t have all of the necessary tools for that trade.

I love to paint, crochet, and turn useless items into something spectacular and useful.


So my goal is to post once a week at least of the things I am doing in detail.  🙂

Lets see how much interaction I have here with a question.  I am going to be getting ready this month for some craft shows that are coming up but I need inventory.  So what are some things that are a must have at a craft show for a crochet business?  Please post your comments and let me know what you think!

Flower Power Bag by The Perfect Knot


I just have to say that this bag is the most beautiful thing ever!  The colors are the best color combo that I have seen in a while!  This pattern works up fast and you can customize the colors any way that you want.  There are also different variations for a flap and the handles to be stuffed or you can crochet around a cord!

I loved this bag so much that I am making myself one!  I have already purchased the yarn and the lining for it!

Here is the picture of my work in progress.  This was taken just after a few squares had been made!


This picture was taken just after I had sewn all the squares together!  It is already looking fabulous!


And here is the finished Product!  I absolutely love the way that it turned out!  It looked even better in person!  If you would like to purchase a purse like this one feel free to email me and we can discuss any details and any changes that you would like to have!

Or if you would like to purchase the pattern and make one yourself be sure to head on over to https://www.facebook.com/ThePerfectKnotCrochet?fref=ts!  She is awesome!
