Amy's Skull Purse pieces

Yea! The back of my purse is finished! It only took me 20 minutes to do these cross bones in surface crochet. I think it turned out pretty well even though it is a little off center. I am all out of the black yarn that I used, so hopefully Milo is up for yarn shopping tomorrow. Usually I am more prepared but this started out as a potholder and has evolved into a bag. Once I have the black yarn that I need, I am going to make one long rectangle of black and red stripes to work as the bottom, sides and strap of the purse. I think I will be finished by next Wednesday, including the liner that I will sew into it. My blog is if you would like to check out my previous posts. pieces

I just checked and my heart is still beating!!! :) But I haven't been doing a lot of crochet these days. I'm stuck on the spidey afghan! I don't understand how I'm suppose to make the webbing?! When I read the pattern it says that I'm suppose to crochet backward! I really don't know how to do that. I will try something else, don't know yet, if any of you "chicks" know a simple way to make the webbing please let me know.

On another subject, I did a bit of sewing, if for a swap on craftster, you can see it on my blog just click on my name above :) It's a simple and fun mini tote. I just love making it, and may start making more to sell on the web. I made one for my sister with an old Charlie Brown bed sheet and an old curtain...I don't like to waste material. I'm one of those people who "REUSE, REDUCE, RECYCLE". Imagine we (the world) use to throw old curtains, bed sheets, etc. in the garbage!!! Now I think twice before throwing anything away. If I don't reuse it I give it to good will! I have a few t-shirt my teenage step-daughter gave me to recon for my wee daughter, I'm just waiting for inspiration or a simple easy way to recon them..any suggestions??

OK, that's it for me (for now :O)). How are the rest of you "chicks" doing?
