Commissioned Projects

I was commissioned to crochet a shrug and poncho for a 5 year old. Forgot to take a picture of the shrug but here is the poncho. The bottom was supposed to have two rows of eyelash yarn but the buyer didn't like it so I changed it to a scolloped edge. Took less than one skein of yarn and three hours. Sold it for $15

United Methodist Church - Pineville

No, pictures today. We were too spread out to get decent pictures. The space cost me $25 dollars and I sold $65.75 worth of crocheted items. After deduction the fee and Virdie's things I made $29.50 I sold the Black felted purse at the last minute. A lady liked it but thougth it was too small, she didn't even make it to her car before turning around and buying ti.

I hope to finish the pink shrug this weekend. Sue, a co-worker, asked if I had any shorter (3') scarves. Her church members want to include them in Christmas boxes. As I only have 6 - 8 foot scarves, I am going to try and crochet some for them.

Pineville Nazarine Craft Show

My sister-in-law and I shared two space at the Pineville Nazarine Craft Show. They were back to back which was different and allowed for a more open arrangement of our display racks. Did much better. The space cost us $45 each and I grossed $86.25. Small by some standards but I as happy. Made my booth fee with extra.

My crocheted Lucy (wrist bag) in Green loopi and Lion Landscape. I love the way Lion Brand Landscape felts

A large crocheted felted tote, in Loopi rust, green, gray and black. I put a pocket on the inside

Mystery yarn. The strap was too long after I felted it so I cut it and put belt buckels on it to make it adjustable

This purse was crocheted with black Lopi yarn and Lion Brand Confetti. Unfortuantely when I felted the black yarn dull the bright colors of the confetti (I sold this at the United Methodist Craft fair)

I crocheted a second bag but used RH WW and confetti. I love the colors in this one. I put inside zipper pockets in both

Felted Purses

Well I finally took pictures of several of my crocheted felted purses. I found Reynolds Lopi (bulky) when The Sewing Bird closed this year. I love it for my purses. The one to the left was made with red, black and teal. I got ambitious and completly lined it and put in two large zipper compartments.
