Floral Fiesta Backpack

Project Description

What was your source for this crocheting project? Online Photo or Website Name of website or photo Flower Fiesta Backpack Link to website or photo mylittlecitygirl.com/?p=4112 What are you most proud of? How striking the lime green is with the deep purple cotton yarns. Pattern was right on the money and easy to follow. Except for the crocheted flowers directions...they were kind of tough to follow so I used YouTube and found plenty of visual help there. Just search for "crocheted flowers." What advice would you give someone starting this project? Practice a little bit working with cotton yarn, if you haven't worked something up using it. It can be quite a bit different than non-cotton yarns which just seem to slide on a hook or needles. So, maybe try a washcloth first, then go to this pattern.

What you will need

  • Sugar & Cream Hot Green cotton yarn
  • Lion Cotton Deep Purple yarn
  • acrylic beads
  • heart buttons

Aw thanks! I am working on it so it can get to my 6 yr old granddaughter in time for her father's visit to her in 2 weeks.
