I have an order for two trinket bags. Someone asked how long one of these bags takes to make. At the time I was working in odd snatches of time, so it was hard to tell. But on this one I made a concerted effort to work it out. The bottom took almost an hour, to thread and crochet. Each pattern repeat takes half an hour to thread and an hour to crochet. There are four pattern repeats. So that gets me to 7 hours. There's also time to finish off the top, thread in ends, set up and put away beads.... It's more time than I realised frankly.
