Funny how sometimes a person can get right inside your head, even if you’ve never met them (even if they aren’t actually real, like a character from a novel). That has happened to me with some of the friends I’ve made through blogging, one of whom is Tamara from Crochet with Tamara.
I have a beautiful bag that I purchased from her earlier this year, it is hanging on my wall in my bedroom where it is a source of inspiration to me. One day, when I’m ready, I’ll take it off the hook and use it, but not just yet.
I have a couple of garments in my wardrobe, waiting for me to have a Tamara moment and renovate them into the kind of funky and striking clothes that I know they can be. You know, for my funky image!!! ha
I also love Tamara’s shoulder sack “purse” (what we call a “bag”), and she’s posted a couple of photos of ones she has made recently. There is something about the shape of the bag that appeals to me, so she kindly shared her pattern and I made one myself. Not the greatest crochet success, as it happens, because I got the bottom a bit wonky and may also have decreased more on one side of the strap than the other. But, hey, I finished it, right!?
And what’s a bag without a flower?
Now it just needs a lining, but that’s for future Jill.
