A few posts ago, I showed you my very first attempt at tapestry crochet, in which I made a little “bowl”.
Well, I was not satisfied and went on to transform it into a little bag. I did not make the sides using tapestry crochet, but instead made little puff stitches – like the ones used in the inifinty scarf which I posted about in my last post. Here it is – what do you think?
I am always on the lookout for new techniques and ideas when it comes to crochet and recently, I came across something called tapestry crochet. This technique will allow you to make the most beautiful and intricate designs – some can look very complex and you might think that they are for very experienced crocheters – but other than multiple colour changes, tapestry crochet is practically the same as normal crochet, using a single crochet as the main stitch, and using several colours of yarn at the same time. So give it a try!
Here is my first attempt where I wanted to get a feel of the technique – the pattern I made up as I went long. It’s a little bowl 🙂

Now – I’m off to start my next tapestry crochet project – so stay tuned….
