Never mind, these things happen. So I decided to start another little crochet bag. I was limited with the materials I had so I used three strands of finer cotton thread. I mixed some blue in for the bottom part and just used cream for the star stitch part because you really lose the prettiness of the stitch if you crochet it with a mottled thread. I found a piece of fabric for the lining which matches the colours nicely. I think I will thread a bit of narrow ribbon where the colour changes from mottled blue to cream. I temporarily tried the look with some blue thread and I think it will look pretty. This one is smaller than the black one. Thank you for the suggestions on the previous post, when I'm home I'm going to look for some colourful thin nylon cord (if I can find some) to try another bag and see how that works out.
I also have to tell you that I tried again working with size 10 thread (see earlier post on larger shuttles for thicker thread)… I'm coming to the conclusion that I don't like size 10!! It just feels too big and I can't seem to get a nice working rhythm with that size thread. I'm wondering whether I will have to stick to size 20 even for larger pieces. What about you? Do you like tatting with size 10?
