This was a treat to myself for surviving a much stressful week with finishing up my tax prep and a mammogram visit. Just me, my projects and binge watching Orphan Black.
Started off finishing off a farmers market net bag. Using scrap cotton yarn, I made bright blue, white, orange and red bag. Use Grrlfriend Market bag by Laura Spradlin. Easy pattern, great looking bag. Thinking of making up another (maybe more) out of some brown cotton that I adopted. Not the nicest color but thinking I may try dyeing an ombre navy over the brown.

Remember commute project #2: Seed Stitch Pouch. I added the zipper, lining and zipper pull. Here's a couple of pics of the process.

Decided to add some magenta top stitching at the top edge of the lining and the knitted edge of the pouch. Plus I used a one of the crocheted button I made with my Koigu scraps as the button pull. This is a pretty big pouch. More like a clutch. Once I'm totally finish, I'll post that picture of the finish project. Hopefully this weekend.
I'm also trying to finish up a crocheted basket made with plastic bag strips. Cute little basket. Will try and make basket with t-shirt yarn. I guess this is a the life of an upcycler.
