Quick WIP Project/ 2 Drawstring Camera Cases

First camera case has some charms on it a heart and a diva charm. I did with a K hook Single Stitches the first 3 rows then Single Stitches in the back hoop all the other stitches to make that ruffy look in the yarn.
I did a long row of 30 single stitches and used a safty pin to guide the yarn though the back to make it that look like a drawstring.

Second camera case is much different I made this one different more of a 2 piece that I crocheted together. The first 3 rows is done in single stitch the rest of the rows are also single but, I also chain 3 stitches and skip a hoop. I started off with change 9 witht he first piece and change 10 witht he second piece to make the second piece more wider in width. I crochet around to correct them together in a more of a oval shape then a round shape guess hard to explain but, I mainly work with what I got I more practice and keep on practing until I get what I like after I am finished. And loved this one. By skipping a stitch it made the whole in between ever stitch so when you look at the case you can see inside the case.:)

I did the same thing by chaining some stitches to make a long drawstring to use with a safty pin to guide though the bag the drawstring is used to close it up and also to use as to hold the case.:)

Brake is now over

Took a big brake from crocheting and sewing. Mainly because my left wrist was hunting me so bad thinking I can have carpal tuner however that is spelled lol. But, now it's getting better and everyone is hunting me down from me to sew or crochet something for them so want to make me some extra money and get back into the groove of things. Wrist not hurting as much as before. Got to finish up a crochet rap for my sister yesterday and also she wants me to teach her how to crochet she was going though a couple of my crochet books and there was so much in the book she wants to try to make for herself one day so first she have to know the basics and go from there. So for she know how to chain and the single stitches and some other stitches she still learning but, I think I am a good teacher lol.:) Don't mind showing her how I learn. I showed her a couple of the websites I learn from and I also recorded some of the Uncommon Thread shows that has crocheting in it. So she watched and listen and asked me questions:) Wouldn't mind show whoever want to learn. Have some people I know wanting me to make them some purses so have to also dust off my sewing machine and getting to sewing up some thangs haven't done that in a minute also. :) so wish me luck got to get my crochet on.

I did this before sent in a suggestion to DIY in having them do a Crochet Show but, I also did it again a woman in one of my email groups said something about it so I went ahead and did it again the link is below we all know we need to see more crocheting on tv. DIY have 2 Knitting shows and at times for us crocheters we have to try to catch when Uncommon Thread has a crochet group on and at times that is at least 2 to 3 times a month at times.:),2019,DIY_14146_14234,00.html

Had to do me a quick crochet hook case as a carry along. Not big enough for all my crochet hooks but, enough room to put at least 10 inside the case and take with me as I go around and about. Did single, puff, and slip stitches using a K hook. Love the way the colors came together.

Here I did a quick craft box for my scarp of yarn but, after making it I realized I have more scarf yarn then I can handle lol. Something I wanted to do quick. N hook did double and single stitches. I also used felt for the inside since I do a lot of sewing I want to use the felt to slick my pins into. I also use plastic canvas in between the crochet stitches the they felt. And put them all together by weaving though the crochet stitches and into the canvas.
