On Ravelry i stumbeled over this bag and I really liked it. I don´t understand Portuguese but while browsing some projects from fellow Ravelers I found this link. Thank you!
So I searched the yarn I want to use up and which is totally not "next-to-skin" yarn for me and started to crochet.
This bulky tweed wool yarn is very forgiving in little mistakes. Very nice I think.
Last year I´ve bought this fabric online because I wanted to start sewing (I didn´t really start) and because I liked it. The russian inspired motives together with the warm Tweed yarn make a nice match for a winter bag, don´t you think so?
The lining of the bag was the hardest part for me (still no relevant sewing skills here) but I even managed to make a little bag! I´m really proud of myself. Seaming and a bag on the bag....that´s a lot of sewing.
I´ve changed the straps a bit, because I prefer this lengh. I´m think about adding some crochet flowers or pom-poms in mustard yellow..... to be continued.
