Starling Handbag

Futuregirl's Starling Handbag

Well, I’ve found a new crochet project, plus an outstanding blog to follow: www.futuregirl.com.  After cringing at what a long way I have to go before I have a blog as great as this, I let myself enjoy that giddy feeling you get when you stumble across a really great technique you’ve never heard of but  can already tell you can’t live without — namely, the Foundation Single Crochet.  This technique turns into your initial chain row a first row of single crochet all at the same time.  The Starling Handbag is a great-looking, sturdy bag, and looks to be perfect for some fun felted or embroidered embellishments.  That big cone of Lily Sugar n’ Cream I picked up at a thrift store is begging to be turned into this fun project.

Futuregirl’s instructions are clear and simple, and the videos are really the best I’ve seen.  I’m definitely listing her as a favorite blog and mentor, I hope you do the same! And stay tuned to The Crooked Yellow House!
