Upcycled Jean Messenger Bag

I have such a hard time keeping secrets. I feel like I have been keeping this one forever. I have a new pattern that is appearing in the Crochet! Magazine spring issue. The digital version goes live today so I can finally share it with you.As always they did a great job photographing it.

 Here is the picture that I used to submit it:

I can't wait to get my magazine in the mail. If you would like to see the other patterns that they have in this issue go to this site here.

teaching a class: simple beanie and scarf

I wanted to show you another class that I am setting up to teach at the local art studio.
It will actually be two classes one for the hat and one for the scarf. Both are very beginner projects. I also loved, loved, loved the yarn. I used Sirdar: Montana yarn you can look at it here. It was very smooth on the hook, and incredibly soft. The colors were also beautiful. The colors helped me not get bored on a simple project because it was always changing.
