How to make and put together Tapestry Crochet bags sequentially
I was hooking away at my amigurumi and then pop! I was into making tapestry crochet bags!! I don’t even know how that transition happened.

I wanted some strong crochet straps that would not stretch nor look sloppy. But none of the crochet stitches I knew could produce what I wanted. So I had to come up with something new (to me) … and it worked beautifully!
