Granny Triangles Pouch & A Mystery Stripy Case

Hope your week is going on a good note, my dears. I resumed my work on Wednesday,  it was difficult to get up early after Diwali break, go by auto, spend 8 hours in the office, just dreaming of time when I can finally pack and go home. I failed to post Diwali pictures, but maybe will do it in the next post, as of now  I cannot wait to share some new mini-projects I added to my list. I did them taking rest from my blanket, to which I am about to give a border.
I first wanted to make another drawstring bag using granny squares, when granny triangle idea came to me suddenly. I crocheted 4 different granny triangles, single crocheted them together and voila, my very useful and pretty pouch! I noticed that I used the same colors I have been attracted to for the past few years. Hope this color addiction goes away soon, but perhaps I can never live without purple.
I like that you can change the whole look of such project by simply turning its sides. I already filled the bag with another lot of miscellaneous.
Now guess what is this? Yes, it is a case for something I purchased few years ago and didn't have a chance to make proper "clothes" for... a set of tarot cards. Just recently a friend and a colleague of mine inspired me to make some spreads. Once again when I took out my deck, I felt pity for its already starting to wear off paper cover.  I finished this acrylic attire for arcanas day before yesterday and hope they like their new "sweater". Come on, it's getting colder here too now! 
 As usually I used one of the buttons I have in my stash for such kind of projects - perfect color match and a cute flower in the middle. I went for a simple case design, randomly choosing the stitch type for each row. There are single crochet, double crochet, puff stitch (or corn stitch?), and crocheting in back loop stitches technique. The triangle cover attached at the back of the case was made by decreasing the number of stitches in the rows. 

Linking to the November Stash-buster challenge at Linda's Crafty Corner.
I attempted to get a navigation drop down menu in my blog, but got a problem with it hiding behind the gadget, and if I increase the width, the whole gadget stretches what doesn't look good at all. I might try again today, so if you see some changes in my blog, it means I am up to some blog renovation :) Have you started preparing for any other holiday, festival? Like Christmas? I know that many are still to celebrate the Thanksgiving day. This is my birthday month, so I need to do something good in my blog very soon, I mean a giveaway for example. Thanks for your praising (as usual :)) and loving comments on my posts, my dears! 

Have a great weekend and keep warm! It got pretty chilled in the mornings here in North India :)

  16. That little drawstring pouch is just adorable. Creative! And useful. I love staying home. Going to school some days truly is a chore. We are off today and I am so grateful! Unexpected days home are a blessing even with all the mess that is out there right now because of the storms. I am safe and sound at home and thankful for that. And I see the sun trying to shine. Yay! Best wishes, Tammy
