Market bags

I was very busy last week working on this purse. I found pattern for similar styled market bag on Ravelry while ago. I made a few adjustments to it and made it a purse. At first I made it bigger – since I had a little child I have always needed a bigger bag or purse. I made the handle longer; the bottom stronger; put a lining in it, and added the zipper. I made one, a white one, couple of week’s back. You can find the full free pattern with all adjustments here.

I really like making all sorts of bags and purses. I like to experiment and try new models as well. These are a couple of my “experiments“, which I think you may find interesting. Always handy and they are looking good as well.

Have a nice week

Something very pretty

I found a couple of things I made for my little Angel. I thought these might come in handy for the summer.

A simple, very pretty hat is always useful. This pattern is easy to follow, and done in no time at all.

When I saw this Ladybird backpack I had to make it. It doesn’t carry a big weight, but it makes the kids so happy.

A lovely Pineapple dress, that can be worn in summer, and in winter as well. As you can see my model enjoyed me taking pictures of her in this dress. It is little bit more time consuming, but the final result is worth it.

Have a nice week
