I made a new purse.


Honestly, I found a youtube channel that had a bunch of tutorials for beautiful crochet flowers and fancy repeating motifs and I felt a deep need to do something with them. (And the tutorials are amazing -- you can see well, and everything is clearly explained) This flower, and this tape, sewn on to a base of King Charles brocade.

The flash washed them out, but without it, it's a bit dark. Oh well.
The strap is double knit, because it was the only way I could figure to get it gold on one side and white on the other.
And there's a zipper, cloth lining, and multiple pockets inside, but I didn't bother to photograph it. My sewing skills are not really, uh, skills. When my aunt saw it, she started telling me how I should make things to sell. But man, it's good enough for me, but not to someone paying money. You know? Even knitting without any dodgy sewing, I'd be too worried that it would get stretched out or something would come undone. I'll never feel ok selling things, heh.

And then I realized, I never got around to posting photos of the purse I made about a year ago!

Just some garter stitch stripes, with crochet embellishment, again. That pattern is Bleeding Heart, which I didn't have any video of, so it was kind of complicated to figure out. Especially since I hadn't really done anything like that previously. It's such a pretty pattern, though.
