What's your Favourite?

These are some set's that I have made, to hopefully sell at a market.
I have not used a pattern for any of them.
They are unique in themselve's.
I just start to crochet and form a pattern and colour scheme
that will suit the yarn that I am using.
I have given them names and am hoping that you will vote on your favourite.
This will give me more insight on what to duplicate.
Thanks for looking.

Lily's gift for her 8th birthday

Scarf, hat and bag set for Lily.

The bag is a plastic container which has had the top and bottom cut off, then cut through the centre, hole punched around then crocheted through the holes, with a sc circle, attached to both ends.

The original idea for the bag comes from the kooky crochet pattern book.

Better material for handles

I believe that I have found better wire for my hand bag handles.
It is welding wire which is about 16 guage which is the guage I need.

Gone totin' mad

I've been trying out some of my own patterns for tote's.

I haven't made the perfect one as yet.

But I'll keep trying.

Medium size tote

Large tote with back pack straps

Pretty small lime green cotton tote, with beads.

Off Topic Post

I usually like to only post about crochet, but I had to share this.

My computer has allot to do with my crochet research and development, so it's not surprising that I am on my computer quite a bit.

One morning, sleepy eyed I turned on my computer, then I reached over to turn the lamp on and I came face to face with this!

Need I say more?

Oh, this is a huntsman spider, which is harmless, it just looks big and scarey.

Scrumble/Freeform Crochet

Have you ever wanted to try freeform?
Me too.
It is also known as scrumbling.
One of the many pleasures of scrumbling, was to learn the bullion stitch.
I think it is so pretty and the more you do it the better you become at it.
Another pleasure is to use up your scrap yarn and you can also use those little pieces that went wrong, that you couldn't bare to throw out.
If you look closely at the pictures, you will see a black and also a blue sole for slippers I was making some time ago.
Once I added these pieces I couldn't resist to turn the blue sole into a thong(flip flop)
and the black sole into a boot shape.
I also have a graph of a cat, a star, a butterfly, flowers and a granny square that I was trialing.
I believe there are no rules when it comes to freeform crochet apart from one that I created for my self.
Have fun with it!
I am making a blanket/throw/afghan at my own leisure, with no particular colour scheme.
