This is my first real attempt at a free form project. My older daughter really wanted her turn posing with my work.

The bag was a lot of fun to make and pretty easy because I cheated.

How did I cheat?

Well, all the yarns are the same brand and were next too each other in a display. They are all different textures and gauges but simliar hue. (Or is it shade?) Anyway...and the yarn did most of the "work" for me.

Here is a close up of the stitches..

It actually started out as a scarf with the dangling "scrumble" and some real free formed loose stitches. Then, when I reached a spot where I realized I wanted it to be a purse I started making the squares. The back I did to match size wise with the front but I did it in stripes and fun stitches.

Thanks for looking. I had planned on selling the purse but I don't think my daughter is going to give it back.

Do you think I should try to make some more purses? Let me know what you think.

I love your free form bag. Great work.It's creative... If you make a purse maybe you could choose a small yarn ( the stiches could impact more)
