This crochet hook roll is for my first swap on Craftster and I'm excited to send it tomorrow. I hope my swap partner likes it.

I decided I need some grocery bags. I've got a few random Trader Joe's canvas bags and a Chico bag for my purse but after going to the fabric outlet and buying 6 yards of this cute polka dotted fabric for $3 a yard I decided to sew a cute matching set of my own. I used the Morsbags pattern, which was super easy to follow. Here's the first one!

This week I took a workshop at The Crafter's Studio, a great new space in Santa Cruz, on how to make a handbag. The workshop was fantastic, but I was a bit sad that we didn't finish our projects in the first class and that I have to go back this week to get it finished. Rather than trying to finish the project on my own (there were zippers and other tricky things I'm a bit intimidated by) I decided to make another one this weekend. I partially used an Amy Butler pattern but changed the handles and added a magnetic clasp and some partitioned pockets on the inside. I'm loving the finished product!!
