A few little handy things

Hello dear readers

When I was going through the things I made, I found few that I think you might find interesting and handy as I did.

This cute Camera Purse was one of my very first projects. I remember I found the inspiration for it on Ravelry

I looked today and I couldn’t find it any more. I do remember I had trouble making the rectangle look like rectangle. I had to improvise a lot, but it came together OK. All the important things fitted in it nicely.

Angel saw this Little Kit-Kat Purse while we were looking at the laptop, and she asked if we could do it right away. I remember it was fun making it, and since I was under Angels constant supervision I finished the purse in maybe not even 2 hours.

Looking for my Lip Balm in my purse all the time gave me idea to make this handy holder.

Owl Key Chain looks nice on any bag or purse.

The big blanket is finished, and I have started new project. I found a pattern for this Purse

It is not exactly my choice of colors, and I would choose different handles, but the idea is fantastic. I have made some changes and started on it already.

I still don’t know what I’m going to do about  the handles, but I’m sure I will come up with something. I’ll keep you posted on my progress.

I found another beauty in my grandma’s attic. The patterns I’m finding are just beautiful, but in very poor condition. Having been stored for a long time, they are all yellow and hard to read. This is my, a little bit improved, version.
