So the bottom of my beercap read last night. I thought it a fitting title for this post, since I haven't been teasing you over the past week with WIP pictures of my latest project. As much as I love sewing, sometimes I just want to have a project that I can work on while sitting in front of the tv. Thus, last week I picked up a crochet hook and some yarn and just did whatever my hands told me. Since I only know how to do a chain stitch and a granny square, it's not surprising that they started making more granny squares. I already have a granny square bag, so I wasn't sure where the project was going. Luckily, as soon as I finished the first square, an image popped into my mind. Thus, the granny square clutch was born.
I wanted to make it sturdy in my hand, so I sandwiched Timetex in between the inner and outer lining of the bag. So there are actually four layers to this bag: the outer crochet layer, brown lining to hide the timetex, timetex, and then a peek-a-boo polka dot inner lining. To keep my goods in the bag, I used a zipper closure. Check my flickr page for more detailed pictures.
I finished the bag in perfect time for Sew Mama Sew bag month. While I did use crochet in this project, there was still plenty of sewing.
I'm pleased with the end result. Are you?
