Creative Circle Blog Party

Welcome to the Creative Circle Blog Party!


The idea of this blog party is that several friends have posted at the same time about a project that they have done, and also include a link to the next person in the 'circle'. Then you, the reader, can have lots of fun following the trail and looking at some great projects. The circle started with Rinda, so if you get lost you can go back to the beginning here



My project is something crocheted. That sounds a bit like Mastermind - my chosen subject today is.....


I made this bag for carrying my Ipod around in. Often I am working around the house and I am not always wearing trousers with pockets in them, so I thought I would make this bag so that I can have music wherever I go.










I have never written any instructions for crochet before, so I hope you can understand this. I did a chain of 15, then dc (UK terms) into every c, starting with the second from hook, then repeated this each row until it was big enough to fold into three parts, the third part being a small flap. For the strap I did a chain as long as I wanted, then dc into each chain. Then sew together, add a button for decoration, some velcro for a fastening and there you are - portable music!

Now for the next blog in the circle, go on over and see what Lizzie has made. Have fun!!

Oh Fiona - have you managed to do this project this week? What a great idea ... thanks for sharing it with us.

Very clever. I may need one of those! It would certainly keep me occupied for a couple of hours. Maybe the Christmas Present list might benefit too..

Cute idea. And your instructions were clear even here in the US. I guess we both speak the same in "crochet". Love the color, too.

Tracy said...

Fiona,
This is my first chance to take a proper look at everyone's post, and yours is perfect! Such a great idea for both experienced crocheters and those who are amateurs. . . and so timely for the holiday.
Thanks for participating in the blog party!!!
