Camo Zippered Accessory Bag

I made Alfred a small zippered bag to match his camo computer bag. It's for his mouse and charger. I crocheted it with a yarn already dyed in camo colors. I "invented" (that is I've never seen it anywhere) a stitch to create two cords running around the bag. They give it some style. After all rows of single crochet in round, I used a reverse single crochet into the front loops only. Then the next row simply continued in single crochet in the back loops. After that, of course, I worked in both loops as usual until the next cord.

Another Shopping Bag

I like bringing my own bags to the store because not only am I helping the environment and saving money, I get compliments on my crocheted bags. :) Here is one from a new pattern from Lily.

Red Day Lily Watercolor

Here is my latest, worked from a photo of day lilies I took at McKinley Park last weekend. All those roses were so cliche'. ;) I used masking fluid and gum arabic for the first time. Fun.
