Traditionally Trendy .. another crochet purse

potli bag , drawstring purse

The crochet bug seems to have bitten me really hard for I find myself promptly reaching for my crochet yarns and knitting needles , pushing aside my bead work projects waiting to be finished .
 But I am not complaining , for I quite like the ease and speed with which I am completing these little  purses .

   Indian silk sarees are richly decorated in terms of pattern and the bold use of contrasting colors and so   I have made a fairly simple in terms of the stitches used . The pattern is only created with a play on colors .I have used stiff golden yarn for the base as it holds the shape quite well and firm . the pink border is highlighted with gold . The beautiful shade of blue matches the traditional silk sarees perfectly , giving it a simple yet  bold  look .

 The draw string is made by spool knitting , and I love the effect . It is so much fun that I plan to make more cords in this technique .

Till next time then.....

    1. Thanks Radhika . As you must have observed , I love the use of bright and bold colors as I think these match with our Indian outfits very well :)
