African Flower, Power Bag Update

I haven’t finished this bag and already I am attributing magical powers to it.

I don’t know the precise nature of these heretofore unidentified powers, but I have a lot of expectations of this bag, not the least of which is the ability to transform.

While I spent most of the weekend getting caught up on sleep after a week which had felt long by the time the sun had set on Tuesday, I did manage to finish the requisite hexagons and half hexagons to be able to put the bag together, and here is what I came up with:

crochet hexagons crochet purse
Front of African Flower Crochet Hexgon Bag

crochet hexagons crochet purse
Back of African Flower Crochet Hexgon Bag

Clearly, the color scheme makes it difficult to misplace.

I have not made a final decision about what to do with regard to closures and handles. My initial plan involved a zipper, but because of the way I oriented the bag, that is no longer an option. Now I am considering either a button/snap assembly of some kind or crisscrossing handles that close the purse.

No doubt I will run though five or six different options before exhaustion forces my hand and I choose one.

    1. Thank you. I have been working on a crocheted cord today that I will use as the handle. I’m hoping it works as I imagine it will.
