Tunisian crochet
Has anyone done a project with this method? The effect is absolutely gorgeous! I made what turned out to be a short scarf, but I'd like to do more than a rectangle. The online patterns I've seen have been rather 'eh'. Any suggestions?

Here's the 'scarf'

I saw an episode of Uncommon Threads demonstrating this method of crochet but I haven't done it yet. Your scarf looks beautiful! I know that has some tunisian stuff.

I have made the sampler afghan from Leisure Arts leaflet 2501,
52 Tunisian Crochet Stitches. I got it off eBay and it is an excellent
resource for tons of different stitches which could be used for
projects. I just have never ventured beyond the sampler afghan

Ooh, thanks all!

The Tunisian crochet handbag intrigues me...I'll bet it's REALLY sturdy!

Embroidered Tunisian Backpack
I just (almost) finished this project.

I'm debating a lining...I used fusiable interfacing to secure the embroidered stitch ends and give the bag some stability overall. So between that and the stitch pattern, the bag is very sturdy.

Guess I should line it just for the sake of a nice finish!

Sigh...Off to the fabric shop!
