I've been researching patterns for messenger bags, aprons, totes with lots of pockets, and more. I drew up schematics for what the "Adventure" Messenger bags will look like, researched the most effective way to make a plain apron more versatile, and designed the ultimate crocheter's perfect carry all!
These are my sketches!
|The Quintessential Adventurer Bag!|
This is the quintessential Adventure bag! It will have two main pockets inside, a back pocket, side pockets, 4 pockets under the flap, a pocket on the outside of the flap, and 2 secret pockets that only the creator, adventurers (and their mothers) will know about! This bag will be able to hold all the adventure essentials and comes with a matching blanket that fits into its own compartment behind the bag! World, beware!
|The Updated Basic Apron!|
This apron will have lots of "cargo" room, as well as a hook for an oven mitt and a towel loop. It will be super functional, durable, and adorable! After the holidays, I will probably make myself one!
|The Ultimate Crochet Tote!|
This tote will have two smallish pockets on each end, two large pockets on the front, and a thin large pocket on the back. The inside will have 2 compartments, a large one for yarn, projects, etc. and a smaller one for books, magazines and instructions. The top will either close with a flap (as shown), or the front and back will come up higher and there will be handles and two snaps. Along with it I am also making some simple drawstring bags for yarn, no more tangled masses of yarn under your projects... just smooth crocheting from here on out... Well, not from here, but after x-mas...
These are just some of the new projects I am working on... I hope you will check back tomorrow to read more about what will be coming up at the Downtown Art Market on November 13th!
