While I wait to meet up with my SIL to hem the lining for my purple bag, I’m desperate to crochet another one. I have some fabric in my stash that’s calling my name, so now the task is to match up yarn and fabric. I have this blue cotton. What color yarn would you match it with?
I also have this gorgeous satiny fuchsia polyester. It might not be a lot of fun to hem or sew in, but it sure will make a fantastic lining.And of course I have my matching yarns to choose from. The first is some cotton Sprout.Or I have this lovely Cascade 128 Superwash.Then I stuck a toe out of my traditional box and tried this variegated Malabrigo.I do like it, but then I remembered I have more purple cotton. Maybe the Malabrigo would look better with purple? Or maybe I’d rather save the Malabrigo for something other than a bag?From there, I went a little wild. I found some color combinations that are more…shocking. Bright. Vibrant. I know I like these colors together, but would they be too overwhelming in a bag?
