I love to use up supplies. And I am crocheting this flat bag with the last of my scraps of cotton and linen yarns. After crocheting a few big bags I needed a little bag to put inside it.

Many of you know Alice from Kindred Spirit’s fame. We have teamed up before and always have a fun time combining our different talents.
I will be giving you link to her blog at the end of this post to find out more about her and details on the class.

Registration has opened for this event. Go HERE for more information and to sign up.
