Swap things

These are my latest quick projects. 


First, this golden bag that can be used as cosmetic pouch, bag, purse... I crocheted it as a gift for a special person for a swap. The bag is fully lined...I am extra happy for this because I used my sewing machine after a long time.I was scared of ruining the pouch , but It turned out great at the end.I am very happy about that. The pattern is Recycled Purseabilities by Nannybird Crafts.
Actually this is the second time that I am using this pattern and I really enjoy it. Such a simple pattern and easy to follow.


After crocheting the socks form the previous post I had some leftovers form the red yarn and decided to use it smartly. I made this bookmark.



The pattern that I used for this bookmark is Baltic Scarf from Berroco. Somehow, I have used this pattern as an inspiration for many projects. Some of them are my headband, lot of bookmarks that are given away as gifts, two scarfs(first and second one)...

I love the golden bag, so elegant. The yarn looks very smooth and shiny, is it silk?

Torba mi se jako sviđa.Kako je zlatno sjajna ja bi je i u kazalište ponjela,nekako mi je pre svečana za kozmetiku!

honeysuckle-the label says 100% Rayon, but really I am not sure what that means :)

The bag can be used for everything,I just suggested that it can be used for cosmetics.

radica-sorry for being so late..and I am so glad you like it, cause I wasn't sure if it is your style. :)

Torbica je divna, a eto, granicnici za knjige se mogu na razne nečine praviti i uvek su lepi i prakticni.

Drenka, na graničnike lepim providnu samolepivu foliju, ima je u bolje snabdevenim papirnicama, format 70x100cm.
Srećno.
