One day things something clicked into place. After watching a freeform crochet purse project on a DIY program, I found a source of wonderful novelty yarn, picked up my crochet hook, and started to create my *own* version of free form handbags. I adorned them with vintage jewelry and ribbons, and if I couldn't find matching ribbons, I made my own from fabric. When I brought a batch of purses and scarves to a local boutique to sell, shoppers loved them so much, they were making their purchases before I even left the store. Friends and neighbors who bought handbags also wanted matching hats and scarves, so I made them too.
