Pink Hand-Bag

Here's a hand-bag I made a while back. It's made from 100% Acrylic Red Heart Yarn... it's double stranded to make it extra thick/sturdy.  It has two compartments.  The straps have wrapped handles for grips, and are attached with D-Links to add some shine and texture.  I didn't use a pattern, just made it up from my imagination.

Nest for Eggs

A while back, I made some chicks and eggs.  And I ended up making a nest to go with them.  The Eggs/Chicks were from a pattern in a book I got, and I made the nest up myself.  Just thought I'd finally get around to sharing it.   I sorta made a base net out of one color of brown, then made twigs/sticks out of various stitches on a chain of different thicknesses and colors, then wove them through the net, like a basket effect, then secured them in place.  Then made a few leaves, and sewed those on too.
