Some girls like shoes or jewelry, I like coats and bags. Not to be mistaken with purses, bags must be able to carry a plethora of goods including, but not limited to; cell phone, diapers, wallet, current yarn project and camera. Here is my latest crochet creation, the Derek bag by Che. Like the majority of the items I crochet or knit I found the pattern on Ravelry.
This was my first attempt at lining a crocheted bag and it was a learning process. I started out with a cute nautical print canvas but after destroying that with my seam ripper I found this nice utilitarian brown in my fabric box. I am pleased with the end results and now I have to go find a coat that coordinates with this lovely new bag.
