Handbag and Kindle Case #2

(Not from a pattern)

So one of the benefits to knowing how to crochet, is when it comes to birthday times for my friends and families, they can almost expect to get something hand-made.  And when I'm tight on cash, it works out nicely.  This Hand-bag is for a good friend of mine (for over 20 yrs).  Today is her birthday, however she won't be receiving it for a couple of days.  It measures about 9 inches deep, but 12 inches wide.  and from front to back it is about 1.5 inches wide.  It has a small inside pocket on one side, so keys, change or chapstick don't fall and get lost in the bottom of the bag.

And here's another Kindle Case.  It's a lot like the first one I made.  But I made it a little bit ... sleeker, I guess is the best word. 


Thanks for checking out my stuff!  Let me know what you think, I love hearing feedback, it keeps me going!  :) 


  1. I definitely like the "sleeker" kindle case a lot!!! And the bag colors are great together :)

  2. Thanks, it took a lot longer, because it's handsewn together. Usually I just take 2 peices and slip stitch along the sides so they hold together. Makes a nice braided edge. But I was trying to make it less bulky. I am still not 100% happy with the design, I think it needs to be out of thread :-/
