Crochet Projects!

I finally got pictures of the stuff I've done so far. I can't believe it's taken me so long!

The lap blanket:



Some dishcloths:

The tote bag:







I'm looking into doing another tote bag, wholly different from the above, though. And I'd like to see if I can try my hand at crocheting some lingerie. ;)

Very nice!
Thank you!!
I like the bag! Can you post your pattern? What kind of yarn did you use? (and what hook size?)
I can't exactly post the pattern because I sorta made it up as I went with the bottom of the bag. I will post the inspiration for the bottom and then mesh part--I've just got to get it typed up. I'll let you know when I get it up though. =)

I used Sugar'n Cream 100% cotton yarn in a color called "potpourri" and an H hook. =)
Alright, here's the pattern:

For the bottom, I used a modified version of what can be found here. I would tell you how I modified it, but I'm not sure. And right now I wish I hadn't totally modified it so much because I think it'd be better without, but that's okay. =)

And then I just followed the rest of the pattern on the back of the Sugar'n Cream label (except I haven't done the edging yet):

Mesh:

1st rnd: ch 1. 1 sc in same sc as last ss. *Ch 5. Miss next 3 sc. 1 sc in next sc. Rep from * around ending with ch 2. Miss last 3 sc. 1 dc in first sc.

2nd rnd: *Ch 5. 1 sc in next ch 5 loop. Rep from * around ending with ch 2. 1 dc in last dc of previous rnd.

Rep last rnd until work from base when folded flat measures 12 inches.

Next rnd: Ss in next ch 5 loop. Ch 1. 3 sc in same sp. *1 sc in next sc. 3 sc in next ch 5 loop. Rep from * around ending with 1 sc in last dc. Join with ss to first sc. 84 sc.

Next rnd: Ch 1. 1 sc in same sc as last ss. 1 sc in each sc around. Join with ss to first sc.

Rep last rnd once more. Fasten off.

Strap:

Lay bag on flat surface. Mark center 12 sts on upper edge of one side. Join yarn with ss to first of these 12 sts.

1st row: Ch 1. 1 sc in same st as last ss. 1 sc in each of next 11 sts. Ch 1. Turn.

2: Draw up a loop in each of fist 2 sts. Yo and draw through all loops on hook - sc2tog made. 1 sc in each of next 8 sts. Sc2tog over last 2 sts. Ch 1. Turn.

3: 1 sc in each st across. Ch 1. Turn.

4: Sc2tog over first 2 sts. 1 sc in each st to last 2 sts. Sc2tog over last 2 sts. 8 sts. Ch 1. Turn.

5: 1 sc in each st across. Ch 1. Turn.

Rep last row until strap measures 18 ins ending with WRONG side facing for next row.

Next row: 2 sc in first sc. 1 sc in each sc to last st. 2 sc in last st. Ch 1. Turn.

Next: 1 sc in each st across. Ch 1. Turn.

Next: 2 sc in first sc. 1 sc in each sc to last st. 2 sc in last st. 12 sts.

Join strap to other side of bag working 1 ss through corresponding center 12 sts of bag AT SAME TIME working ss through 12 sts of strap.

Strap and Upper Edging:

With right side of working facing, join yarn with ss to one side of strap and work 1 rnd sc evenly along strap edge and top edge of bag. Join with ss to first sc. Rep around other side of bag.

Hope this works for you and if you make one, I want to see it! =)
Thanks! I'm searching the net for a purse pattern I can follow to make a purse I like (and can make.) For now, I'm working on scull cap #6, and I'm sending one off to a Chemo caps place.
You're welcome! Have you tried looking at the stuff on http://home.inreach.com/marthac/links.html ? There's so much stuff there it's hard to look at it all. But I saw some purses I liked off of that. (I'm not entirely ready to make one yet, so I didn't look at the instructions, but soon.)
