So I've found another client. She is a wonderful woman from California, with 6 kids, nieces and nephews. She made an Alchemy request for 15 different children's hats: 9 knitted baby bonnets, and 6 crocheted visor hats with detachable flowers of different colors. ( She also asked for a crocheted clothing line of which I will post here soon. It's really neat.) It's been a bit tough trying to find the colors close to what she wants, but so far it's been a good experience...I'll be posting pictures up as I make them so get ready for more posts! :)

Ok. So I seem to be a little obsessed with crocheted masks. But I really can't help myself. I truly like the look. Unsurprisingly enough I went on yet another google hunt to find more crocheted mask patterns with my mind set on finding as many as I possibly can. Ergo, here is yet another
...and here is the pattern: Masquerade-Hairpin Lace Crochet Mask (Designed by Jennifer Hansen). A PDF, of course...

While scrolling down the Esty website alchemy listings, I came across someone asking for the making of a crochet"Bootleg Chanel Bag" she found on the Internet. Interestingly enough, I had stumbled upon the very same web page holding the very same pattern. The whole point to the bags development is to debase designer bags through "mimicking". Something I found rather humorous. Ergo, I made no hesitation to bid, which I won. I must mention it was the very first bid I won on the Alchemy section. The woman, or young lady who requested the bag, is such a great sport and I can't wait to send her the finished item.
One question I do have is that although the website seems very legit ( a .org instead of a .com) is the logo not copy righted? I didn't think much of it until I started making the logo. Now I'm not so sure...Still she paid me over Etsy and so I feel obligated to finish it and send it to her. All of which I will.
Here's what the bag looks like. The instructions are on the Counterfeit Crochet Project web page: How to Make a Bootleg Chanel Bag
