Oh No, Not Another One!

Isabella Fiore Hip Hobo
One of my co-workers stopped by my cube today with a photo from a fashion magazine of the Isabella Fiore hobo bag accented with crocheted flowers. This bag retails for $595 at Needless Markup...errrr, uhh, I mean Neiman Marcus. We can DEFINITELY copy this bag and extremely easily!!! I would suggest going over to our favorite store, Target, purchasing a fabric, tweedy looking bag (or finding an old one in the back of your closet or a thrift shop) and covering it with coordinating crocheted flowers and leaves. OK, all of you free-formers....get crackin'.

OK the good news is I am enthusiastic to go down to Target and get a bag and start knocking off.. the bad news, what I lack is the whole free form know how thing... do you have any crochet flower patterns that you would recommend?

Hi Polly...there are lots of crochet flower tutorials online. Start at about.com/crochet and search for "flowers." You can also just type in "crochet flower pattern" in the google search engine and see what happens. Basically, most crocheted flower patterns are the same...just the colors and textures change. Have fun! Send photos of your flowers and purse!
