African Flower Crochet Laptop Case


A few days ago, I found this gorgeous motif and just had to try it out. Saturday afternoon, James and I trekked into Kennesaw and picked up my choices of yarn - hot pink, lime green, bright yellow, and orange. The entire bag is made of 17 hexagons, each measuring about 5" across the flats. Hopefully, I will be able to post the "production" photos soon as the seaming is rather difficult to figure out. The clasps are Velcro dots.

My cotton stock has also been replenished. I have a few cones coming from my mom in Maine, and have 3 full balls of leftover cotton from the bag. I will also purchase some holiday colored ombre cotton to get started on my Christmas gifts.
