Handmade Bags for The Young and Old(er)

Since I haven’t been eating in school during my breaks, I have managed to churn out quite a number of gifts for Hari Raya and birthdays. My hands and mind kept busy whilst distracting me from food. I’ve knitted and crocheted bags for little people and taller ones too.

One of my old school friends found me on Facebook and we picked up quickly as if the decade hasn’t passed. She saw the things I made from my blog and ‘ordered’ a little handbag for her 17month old daughter. I didn’t accept any payment for the bag but requested that she made a donation on Richard’s and my behalf to any charitable organisation, which she gladly did.

I crocheted this pretty little bag and knitted up a bunny buddy to go with it. It’s such a quick crochet and absolutely adorable I think. I’ve been told the girl carries it everywhere, even to bed!

I haven’t made anything for my two best friends before, Radiana and Dee. I was always too busy with other things and I thought it was high time they both got something special from me. I knitted them a Square Cake bag each, just in time for Hari Raya. I think the bags look very festive with the silver thread through the yarn.

The only modification I would make to it when knitting it again is that I will definitely make the handles longer. Maybe an extra two inches to one of the handles. I found it a little too short to fit my hand through it comfortably.

I also knitted two little Amulet Pouches for two special girls, Rachel and Georgia. Their my friends’ daughters who celebrated their birthdays in September.

They hold something really cute in them. But you’ll have to wait for my next blog post to see what they are. 🙂
