Bag embellishment.

I finished my bag kit just after we got to San Diego, but it felt like it was missing a little something. Limited internet in SD meant limited opportunity to scour for a pattern. Limited time to craft in Portland meant I didn’t look there either. Now I’m relaxing it up in Seattle…. time to […]

Crochet iPod Case

Now we’re in Seattle, it’s time to rest and relax. I hit up a couple of craft stores for some pretty yarn and some other bits and pieces, and decided to make something to replace my iPod case, which is unfortunately looking a bit sad and forlorn and …………….ruffled.

This project came from this Magbook: …..and…… I finished it today! Woo! The progression of the project followed […]
