Crochet – connecting people

tapestry crochet bag

Tapestry crochet was long on the list of my crochet projects. I have never tried it before, but I was certainly attracted by the mathematics behind it, since most things I have seen were quite geometrical šŸ™‚

For years one of my friends wanted to have a bag crocheted by me. I think by now she has several baskets, a scarf, but she wanted a bag – because we know (and this blog is a proof) we can’t have enough of them šŸ™‚ This summer, it was finally time for it. And I’ve decided to make it in tapestry crochet. Long story short, I found a pattern on Etsy that I thought was very dreamy and summery.

While the pattern was very well written, it took some time in making the bag. I had to do other things in the meantime, my yarn has finished too soon, so I had to reorder… But finally, I made it šŸ™‚

I was very happy with how it came out, so I decided to send a picture to the Etsy shop. What happened after was one of the nicestĀ conversation I had with a stranger šŸ™‚ I will not go into details, but I will say that Maria Isabel is one of the sweetest girls, far away in Mexico, who was quiteĀ generous with compliments šŸ˜‰Ā Thank you, Maria Isabel, for making my day!

Going back to the title of this post, to prove that crochet connects people, here it is: a girl in Mexico writes a crochet pattern, another girl in Belgium uses it, and yet another girl in Moldova will enjoy theĀ bag:)
