Freeform Part II

I have made great progress this week on my purse. I finished crocheting the main part of the purse. Now all I have to finish is the sides and the embellishments before I sew it together and put in the lining.

Freeform Crochet

I'm trying a new technique that I saw on Uncommon Threads on HGTV using a technique created by Prudence Mapstone Basically you crochet and knit items and sew them together crochet on to forms or latchhook canvas (which is the option I chose). I cut out the pieces and am now crocheting using different colors and textures. I will eventually add some scrumbles and beads. Then I will sew the pieces together, line it and put on handles.

I am enjoying this project, however, it bothers my wrists and arms so I am doing it in short spurts.
