Over the weekend, I crocheted of course and also did some sewing. This is a tote I made from a free mini craftsy class. I first found out about Craftsy last year at Stitches South. I got a coupon for a free class, so I signed up and enrolled in Jennifer Hansen's Tunsian Crochet. It is a fun way to learn new techniques, and find all sorts of different interests. Craftsy allows you to really settle into to class, ask questions and offer more than the quick you tube videos. Sometimes the classes will be on sale and they do offer some free mini classes, I do prefer free or sale items. This tote is from Kristin Link's Reversable Tote and Zipper pouch.
So I had the fabric, and I love paisleys! Not only did I receive my Grandmother Buttke's knitting needles I also have a sewing basket with some old clasps and zippers. And this is the only 9" zipper I had, a Kelly Green 9" zipper for 45 cents and she bought it for 25 cents.
If you have not checked out Craftsy it is worth a look. I like it as another way to to show off your work and possible expand your horizons into some new things. Enjoy!
