Reader Appreciation: Boho Backpack Purse

Crocheted Boho Backpack Purse PatternOne interesting aspect of blogging is all of the folks you get to meet, at least virtually, through your writing. People from around the world frequently leave comments on my blog and social networks. Sometimes I even get e-mails asking questions about different projects or patterns I've posted. It just makes me feel all warm and fuzzy to know that there people around the globe being inspired by my crafty ideas.

One recent e-mail absolutely made my day! June, from Alberta, Canada, wrote to tell me that she had made the crocheted Boho Backpack Purse pattern that I posted back in March. She even sent me pictures of her finished project.

My original pattern was created with a solid color yarn, but I just love how June used a variegated yarn for the body of the purse and complimentary solids for the bottom, straps and edging. I also like the way she made the straps with two different colors.

June said she also made a double layer of the bottom pieces and sewed her straps in between them.

Another adaptation June made in her design was the drawstring. Instead of using a crocheted drawstring, she used a length of cord and push button cord lock. This is a great idea, especially if you don't want the hassle of untying your bag every time you need to get something out.
Many thanks to June for sharing her project pics!

Feel free to leave a comment or e-mail me any time to ask crafty questions or share pictures of projects you have made from my blog. I can't wait to hear from you.
