Marakech Bag in Deep Cranberry

9:38 AM Posted In , Edit This 3 Comments »
I recently just finished a crochet bag. I learned how to bead crochet, and how to do this bag from Lydia at http://www.7echoes.com/. If you've ever been interested in learning how to do this amazing 'stitch' I suggest you go give her site a look. It's amazing! Plus, I made a ton of errors on this bag and it still looks amazing. I decided I wanted to get through it once and enjoy the finished bag. The next time around I will work on getting all of my ducks in a row and my beads in the exact right spot.

Now, you probably know that I am a gamer from the previous dice bag post. Well I play in several games at once. Each of my characters has their own set of dice I associate with their personality. So to do they each have their own dice bag. So this beautiful bag now carries an eclectic assortment of colorful die to suit the character. Rather than crochet a chain to string the bag on, I used come buttery yellow ribbon. A colorful glass bead acts as the closure and two more of these beads are tied to the end of the ribbon to act as a weight when it is being worn. Overall I really like the way it came out. :)

Thank you very much Dot and Ellen! It was so much fun.

Dot, I know what you mean about the time! It didn't take as long as I thought it would learning how to do the stitches. I started using big size six beads. I think earlier in the blog I have bangle bracelets I made that way. If you ever decide to give it a try I hope you'll show me!
