It started out as my January blanket and ended up as this,
… looking nothing like a blanket at all. No, it's not a blanket folded up.
It's a dance bag to hold my dance shoes, fan and other bits of paraphanalia. I was inspired part way through the blanket by this post by Tangled Happy and the fact that my other dance bag had given up the ghost.
The buttons were cut off a garment that went in the rag bag and all the wool is from the stash.
I didn't follow any pattern but just edged the part blanket in single crochet (UK double) making some button holes at one edge. The gusset is just single crochet and is attached with a contrasting wool.
I've not lined it and I don't think I will unless I find it difficult to find things in the bag. I want it to hold my dance shoe bag, fan, phone and purse. I may look as though I'm turning up with a crocheted cushion on my person but hey ho, I'm a big girl, I'll put up with it. I've seen some ladies at dances turning up with a crocheted fan holder. I'm not going that far though as they look like ...
