My brief is to make a shopping bag using Tunisian crochet, with flowers included in the design. This is my first attempt. At 25 cm wide, it's too small for a shopping bag, so I'll have to regard this as a large sample. I'm thinking along the lines of patchwork, perhaps four squares wide, some squares with flowers and some without. Now that I have the sample, I can take measurements and plan the bag on paper, instead of just working away blindly.


  1. It's very pretty! The colors are soothing. The crochet looks wonderful!

  2. How lovely! Almost too pretty for shopping!

  3. I was thinking it would make a nice throw pillow for my sofa! ;-)
