May they rest in peace.
Sometimes we find something that just gets us really excited. Yeah, I was happy when I read about this on another blog that I follow and placed an order. It arrived, and I was wondering where the promised pattern booklet had gone. So I was ready to contact this place and let them know that they'd dropped the ball somewhere. A-hem. I actually had only ordered the hook, not the combo. Oops! I'm glad I went to the site first and revisited the ordering page. Okay. Nobody dropped the ball. I made a mistake. Happy mistake, though! So what's this mystery tool? It's aptly and simply called the Sharp Crochet Hook.
In revisiting the site, I checked out their patterns. Now I'm excited! Have you ever crocheted a purse and then needed a liner and zipper but, not being a seamstress, you were intimidated? That's me. I've only ever used a zipper on my only purse that I tested. I avoid zippers and linings like the plague! I purchased a sewing machine just for that liner and zipper for that one time. lol. I finally took my first sewing class yesterday. I learned that using a sewing machine for anything made out of yarn is not fun. The feed dogs would catch the yarn. I'm sure there's something I could do to change that.
In the meantime, the Sharp Crochet Hook has come to the rescue. I don't have to sew zippers onto purses anymore! Check this pattern out to crochet a purse that has lining and a zipper. In fact, they also have a pattern with just a zipper and no lining. The hook does it all! I have a few purses that I have been wanting to make. I'll start with the purse first and lastly add a base layer to the zipper in a yarn color that matches the purse and whip stitch it all together. I hope you love it as much as I do. I have my hook. Now I get to make a purse :)
