A-shaped shell purse

this is another purse for my officemate again, which has been seating around here for awhile now. i've finally finished it: Image hosted by Photobucket.com it's made of anchor lifestyles crochet cotton thread in size 8. i used 2 strands of thread and a size 1 steel hook.

and here is the zipper/handle detail. this lock is attached to the zipper:Image hosted by Photobucket.com

i'm feeling a little lazy now to put on a lining in this purse as i've now seen the finish project and just very contented with how it looks.
Here's a pouch bag that I made yesterday for a friend whose celebrating her birthday this coming saturday: Image hosted by Photobucket.com I still need a cord as a lock and i used one of the yarns i got from my yarn swap. It is in variegated colors of peach, blue, yellow and a little shade of lavender. There's an old cd at the bottom of it to stiffen the bag. I crocheted another piece like the bottom, inserted the cd between the two pieces then sewed it together.

another bag WIP...

or maybe i should call it purse because it's much smaller and it's for my officemate Samantha. it's also going to have a lining and zipper. i hate working with linings, but well its what makes the whole project beautiful. it's made of thread size 8 and i crocheted it in two strands in pastel colors of pink and aqua with white...an anchor variegated thread. i'll post a photo of it on the weekend hopefully.

anyway it's going to be a long weekend ahead...

i'm almost done with it as i'm doing the handle part of it. then i'll be putting a lining, maybe a printed one, then a zipper. i'm also putting a plastic canvas on its base to stiffen it. i hope it will come out good and hope my friend likes it.
