Just finished crocheting a couple of flute covers. The flutes came without them, so I decided to remedy that. It was an easy work, almost mindless...

Thank you! You are too kind; once you know how to do it, this type of crochet is totally meditative.

Nice!

Are you crocheting them in the round or making them flat and then sewing up the side?

Those are neat. I have done some knitted and then felted bags but not any with designs as cool as yours.

These are indeed beautiful, and the ones on your blog certainly back that up!

Well, you're on the right track, then. You can't crochet without your thumbs! tongue.gif

When I was reading about flutes bags in the NAF section, I was tempted to post pics of some of my crocheted flute bags. Do you use the color-through-color technique for your projects? It looks that way to me, though I could be mistaken. All my bags are color-through-color, and if I can figure out how to post pics, I will wink.gif .

I've also recently used this technique to crochet a woman's purse because I've had so much trouble in finding one that won't fall apart on me in less than a year. Except for the red tailed hawk motiff, which is my own creation, the designs are based on Native American patterns Most of which I got from a book called "Authentic American Indian Beadwork and How to do It" by Pamela Stanley-Millner. It has over 21 patterns that work well for color-through-color crochet.

Like you, I try not to sew any more than I have to. All my bags are done in the round just like yours.

You do good work, by the way biggrin.gif .

Ooooh! I never thought of using a beadwork book to do crochet! I've never done color-through-color. I'll have to google that. smile.gif
