Using My Stash of Finished Objects: My Crocheted Vintage Circle Bag

My crocheted vintage circle bag was rescued from my unused stash of finished objects. I crocheted this bag last spring. All it needed were buttons. This week it became the owner of two chunky white vintage buttons. One button for the front pocket, and...



...one for the top closure.


Now, it is ready for me to use!

This is the picture of the bag from the original 1950's vintage pattern.


Using single crochet and Bernat cotton yarn, this bag was an easy inexpensive crochet project.

I wonder what my fellow fiberistas are up to this Fiber Arts Friday? See you over at Wonder Why Gals to find out!

Happy Fiber Arting!

I LOVE that bag! Last winter Holly aka knitwithsnot gave me a couple of 1950's knitting magazines and once I can get the mildew stink out of them (long story but funny) I want to try to knit some of the projects. There is something so elegant and glamorous about the pictures and the projects. Have you ever seen Pleasantville? I would so love to visit the past like that...of course I would want the small waist to pull off all the beautiful clothes. I digress, I love the bag!
