Easter "baskets"

WOW! I can hardly believe that nearly a month has slipped by without a single post from me. I apologise to anyone who has missed me, but I must admit, you are probably in a minority group.
For a change, I've been very busy and my 'at home' time has been taken up with crochet instead of computer.

You see, I decided to crochet one of these delightful little rose hand bags for my little grandaughter, Little Bear. When I had some left over yarn, it seemed a pity not to keep going. So I made another. But when I thought about it, we didn't have any more little girls in the family. Only boys (sniff, sniff, not that I don't love them, but a few more girls would be nice). So Mummy McTavish has a good friend with 4 lovely little girls (one of whom is in heaven already and doesn't need a hand bag). I only had to make 2 more bags.

But. . . . I couldn't make something for one grandaughter and nothing for the 3 grandsons. Rose hand bags are out for them (even though Dragon and Lion thought they would like one). Instead they get a "man bag" partly knitted and partly sewn, but not finished yet. That will be another post and another photo because I'd better get knitting.
If you think you would like the pattern for the little bags, just leave a comment and I will post it or email it to you.

Have a blessed Easter everyone!


  1. Great job! I'm sure little Bear loves it. I like the ladybug buttons.

  2. My favourite is the pink one. I'm guessing they pick youngest to oldest left to right, I'll have to find out. They look great!
