Dollar store yarn and fabric for purse

I went to the dollar store today and I found this yarn. Very pretty colors - now I just have to figure out what to do with it. Also in the picture is some pink fabric I bought at Joann Fabrics. I saw a post on that someone had crocheted a purse with strips from 2 old jean shirts she had. I really liked the look of it so I'm going to give it a try.

Here's a picture of what I have done so far with the fabric. I stripped it into 1/2" wide strips and am working it in sc. I'm using a "P" hook. Very stiff and tricky to work with - I think I should of washed the fabric before stripping it.

My rag purse is complete - I don't know if I'll try another anytime soon. I'll see.....
(I explain the other purse in another entry)

Glasses and pink camo purse

Here is a new purse I made using Bernat pink camo. I know - you're probably tired of seeing this color but I love it. Besides I only have a couple skeins left. I love making purses and I'll most likely be making alot more. Also in the picture is a pair of glasses I bought at the $ store that I prettied up with some beads. I was tired of the plain ones.

More hooks

I've made some more hooks and here they are. I sell them on Ebay - not much luck tho. I've also made a pink granny square scarf for myself.

I've been cleaning and rearranging our family room - what a job that is. I keep my dogs in this room because they both shed terribly and I need to keep the dog hair in one room, not the whole house - I'm a little allergic and also when my grandsons come over they end up covered in it. It's a large room and they have plenty of space. They're also not cut off from the family - there is a gate at the door to the dining room where everyone seems to congregate. Everyone that comes over sees them and pets them. My son and nephews are always in the family room (it's where the computer is) so they always play with the dogs.
