My friend had asked me to duplicate a bag she liked into crochet.
An exciting venture. The shaping, colors, lining... everything would be a challenge.
And I'm pleased with the end result.
The whole bag is worked in two pieces joined in the middle. A little tricky but it came out really very well.
A nice spacious bag.

Three posts in one day! Blogger is co-operating today.
My latest bag and I sewed it. Thank God I had saved this pattern a long time back as now I can't access the site as typepad is blocked for some reason. So frustrating!!!!!!!!
The instructions were very good & the best part is that the bag is so light and roomy.
My first knitted project - that I can show off!
I really like this pattern by Erika Flory. It's simple & fast &I didn't make any mistakes. Not bad at all for me. (the pattern is available on ravelry)
Since I don't know if it's going to be a boy or a girl, I choose a very bright color. I used size 5mm needle & 2 strands of Hariri yarn held together. I made it a little big- hopefully it'll fit my baby when it gets really cold here.
I had made this a while back. Just never got around to blogging about it. Sitting is a big NO these days. And I still have two more months to go, InshAllah. Can't wait.
I enjoyed making these flowers (sunshine bright). They were a little tricky assembling but well worth the effort. I'm so trying out different color combos. Should be interesting.

Have a nice day! And a ramadan kareem to all!
