Great name for my next project: a crochet purse or bag for marketing, yarn, projects, etc. I have about ten cakes of this Pingouin Fil d’E’cosse No 3. I don’t know how big or how many bags I will make.
Rectangle? Square? Round? What shape should I make?
At first I was thinking market bags, but I didn’t see any I really liked. However, that would use the least amount of yarn and allow me to make more than one bag.
I think I have worked it out…market bags for charity!

Random selection from my music library, which seems quite appropros, considering the object. Although, upon selection, the thought of a gang of old women + one old man, taking the money, stuffing it into this bag and running got me chuckling.

Having tired of working on OPP (Other’s People’s Projects) – :D who remembers when O.P.P. was something one was down with :) – I just could not bring myself to make anymore squares, especially since they were made at such a high tension. And fortunately, I did not need to because I all of a sudden remembered that I had won these purse handles through the guild raffle. Effectively, the bag closure is similar to a clam shell…better to keep the cash in the bag!
There is no lining – who has time for lining when the stuff won’t sell. Most appropriate for bigger items. A project bag, a money bag, remembering to keep notions and coins in smaller, more secure enclosures.
Care: Machine wash warm, Tumble cry low
