More than crochet…

Well, the long service leave is well and truly underway and the creative juices are flowing. I have been neglecting the crochet for other pursuits…namely sewing. I still have crochet projects in sight and planned, but got excited about an idea for making a handbag from old wool blankets.

I have been collecting the fabulous ‘Onkaparinga’ blankets from Op Shops and was going to create cushion covers and doggie beds…but then the bag idea came to mind.

I have upcycled my dad’s old belts as the straps and added covered buttons to keep the strap in place. It’s soft and unique. Love it!
