Recycled Plastic Fat Bottom Bag  

You may remember me saying that it is difficult for me to obtain pretty colors in plastic bags for my crafting. Well thanks to a suggestion from a blogger friend, I asked my local library to save their newspaper bags for me. They have been giving me one pink and one orange plastic bag daily from their newspapers. Anyway I saved up the plastic bags and crocheted my first fat bottom bag.

By Jane Lake The vintage doilies shown on this page are the first four of a set of ten vintage crochet patterns contained in the BEETON'S BOOK OF NEEDLEWORK, written by Isabella Beeton and first published in 1870.

Free Vintage Crochet Doily Patterns from Beeton's Book of Needlework

The invention of the doily is credited to Mr. D'Oyley, a successful 17th century milliner. Mr. Doyle created and sold small fringed pieces of cloth to place under finger bowls, thus protecting the table from water marks. Doilies are still used today to protect the surfaces of furniture from scratches or stains, but they also offer a feminine style element to any room from the boudoir to the basement. The Beeton Book of Needlework uses the word "D'Oyley" in all its crocheted doily patterns, but regardless of how you spell the name, the intricate designs in these doilies are clearly heirlooms in the making. If you'd like to try a vintage crochet pattern, these ten doilies offer an interesting variety of stitches and design combinations. are usually available through Amazon.

By Aileen of the goodtimesithinkso blog,where you will find other beautiful (and free) crochet patterns.

Completed in time for a village fall show in Scotland, this lovely spiral scarf is done in warm, rich autumnal colors, with fluid twists and turns, curves and movement incorporated in the design. Materials: Crochet spiral scarf. We like the visual concept of the spiral scarf in Interweave's new book "Scarf Style" by Pam Allen. But the concept of miles of short rows seemed daunting to say the least.

Even when knitting backwards so taht the turning is minimized, it'd be a long project composed of very short bits. The obvious other direction to try is lenghwise, but we have real psychological problems with projects where every row gets longer, feeling like we're sinking into a pit of non-ending. The obvious solution to all this was to try crochet, and only go at it for 3 rows. This little scarf gives just the right effect, and is light and warm too. We're pleased to see that this was a good enough idea that it got the actual cover of Interweave Press' Fall 2005 crochet issue!
