Flower Blossom Purse

This little bag is from a pattern called “Flower Blossom Purse”, by Yoko Hatta, from the book “Crochet Noro – 30 Dazzling Designs”.  I used Noro Kureyon 256, the same colour as in the original design. I wanted to take more photos of the bag, but it’s now in Sydney, Australia, when I brought it over recently, and I am in Auckland, New Zealand, so I cannot take any more pictures of it!  I wanted to take some more as I thought the colours didn’t come out quite right in these photos, they should have been more of a warm, orange tone.  I ran out of Noro Kureyon before it was finished, so the straps are a little bit narrower and also I had to finish them with left over Noro Silk Garden from the Amelia hat project.  It was so cute, I lined the bag with fabric with a print of crochet hexagons on it, which you can’t see here, but I will take photos of the fabric a little bit later when I make something with the rest of it. I will be putting up pictures of another two bags soon and more crocheted items I made.

I made this flower from the book ‘Crochet Bouquet’, by Suzann Thompson. The flower is called a Columbine. I used left over Noro Taiyo yarn in two colours and a little of another yarn for the stamen in the centre. I bought the hat a little while ago and it did have a flower on it already, but I wanted to make my own flower for it. I took the existing flower off to sew my new one on.
