I think I was bored
I found pictures of a bag I did in Tunisian crochet. My granddaughter really likes it. There are ship's wheel buttons on the front strap ends, star and shell buttons on the "sea floor." I made it up out of scraps of yarn, lined it with a scrap of fabric I had, and used webbing for the straps. There is no pattern, I made it up as I went along. She seems to think having a unique bag is cool. Thanks for looking.

That looks great! Does she use it for a beach or book bag?

I'm not sure what she uses it for. I do know that it has cat hair on it, I think it shows in the picture even.

I can see why your granddaughter loves it, it's wonderful. What a great, one-of-a-kind bag.
I just saw the Knitting Daily show that features Tunisian crochet. It looks like such fun to do. What stitch did you use for this bag?

I think it was all Tunisian simple stitch...or knit stitch. I'm not clear on the names, and as there is often more than one name for a stitch the confusion grows. Anyhow, it's the one that's basically a single crochet worked in two steps.

Granddaughter was watching me play with changing colors and making a diamond; she was the one who said it would make a fish. Now I know about anchoring stitches when using different colors in knitting, I think there may be a way to do it in Tunisian also. As I recall, I had some really long strands across the back.

Is the Knitting Daily show online and if so do you have a link?

Thank you. I like to think I'm creative, I don't know. Mostly I just like playing around with things like that. I'm thinking of doing squares with different motifs and stitching them together as a wall hanging 'quilt' but thinking doesn't get it done. I tell myself it's because I haven't been able to decide on a theme.

This girl just turned 13, has a mind of her own, usually doesn't get too hung up on what other kids say. BUT, apparently she's afraid she'll get teased about it for some reason and doesn't take it places much. Go figure.

Olha, I've seen your pictures, sweaters made sans patterns, most especially the lavender one with flowers on that beautiful little red head. I think you know how to make unique, creative things!

Since I have immese difficulty staying with a pattern and following it through, unique is necessary here.

That is a very cool bag!! I am somewhat jealous of those who can do things without patterns.
