Creative Space October 13,2010

Still working away on the giant granny square, its not taking that long, just have to figure out how I am going to attach the handles since I want to make it a shoulder bag instead of a hand bag. Be more useful as a shoulder bag than a hand bag.

And slowly adding colour to this. Unlike the granny square, this is taking me awhile :/ It could be the paper, or I just forgot how long coloured pencil work can take after using ink pens so much lately at college. Its probably the latter....

Well done on the granny square! I didn't realise you were making a sholder bag with it. I guess it would depend on what type and size of handles you are planing to use. You could always crochet a handle, the length and width to suit. There's a gorgeous crochet bag pattern at http://attic24.typepad.com/weblog/crochet-bag.html ....it might give you an idea for a crochet handle.

Love how it is looking. You can do what Serena advised for the handles or you can line the inside of the bag with fabric and attach fabric handles to the bag. :)
Hugs and have fun

Looking good though, even if it's slow!

One handle or two?? If one, you can crochet a long handle and make a gusset for your bag at the same time.
Here's a Ravelry link to some granny square bags with handles.

Lovely work! I started using pastels and find it hard to work with cp's now. Slow and harder to smoosh around;-)

thanks serena :) thats a very helpful link too :)

thank you norma :) thats also a good idea. I think I might wait until i have the square finished before I figure out how to attach the handles (might regret that tho lol)

thanks rose :)

cindy, probably just one handle, might look better :)thanks for the link :)

sandi, i have been using pastels a lot too, beginning to really love them (just end up with dust everywhere :/)
