Kay Stephenson is a freelance writer and fiber artist living in Atlanta, Ga with her husband, Mark, and her dog, Lady. Working in several fiber related craft areas, she combines quilting, crochet, and wet felting techniques to create unique works of art.
Kay blogs about her craft at http://www.stitchingtimes.blogspot.com. She says, "I learned to crochet, knit and sew at my mother's knee. She could do it all from sewing to tatting, crochet, knitting, embroidery. I learned to knit when I was about 6 or 7 and just never stopped learning new crafts and techniques."
This bag will really catch everyone's attention, and no one will believe you made it yourself. Combining crochet, wet felting and sewing, it is the perfect project to show off as the multi-talented crafter you are. A center divider and multiple pockets can hold cash, ID, cell phone, etc. In addition to the project bag, make the accessory bag - perfect for your scissors, stitch markers, ruler or gauge, etc. And the crochet hook case will keep all your hooks organized in one place - rather than floating around the bottom of the bag or in the kitchen junk drawer.
Note: This bag is made out of both fabric and wet felted pieces. The accessory bag is also designed to be made of fabric.
Bag sides and center divider, and crochet hook case:
14 stitches and 11 rows hdc = 4 x 4 inch square.
Felted = 3 x 3 1/2 inch square.
18 stitches by 13 rows = 4 inch by 4 inch square.
Felted = 2 inches by 2 3/4 inches
