I'm doubly proud and super-happy with how this bag turned out as it included a couple of "firsts" for me:
- Crocheting a chevron pattern
- Using felt pieces
- Punching holes in fabric and making them pretty with proper eyelets
- Sewing other than "normal" fabrics on my sewing machine
The crocheting itself went pretty fast and was easy once you understand the principle of decrease/increase around the wave pattern so it ends up a straight piece of work. The assembly of all pieces and finalization was great as I love working with different tools - making things from scratch is FUN!
Here are a few pictures of the result - what do you think?
