free form crochet

since discovering free form crochet earlier this year
i've been on a roll
using up all of my leftover yarn and then looking for more interesting yarns
also learning new patterns
pinterest is a great resource for finding tons of information, websites
patterns and like minded people
i've joined an online yahoo group just for free form crochet

i love making these purses
i had a hard time finding handles and the ones i did
where the wrong color, too big or just plain ugly
so i figured a way to make my own
out of piping cord and yarn
problem solved!!
i also found these wonderful magnetic snaps

i usually start with a color palette 
then the fun begins
making tons of shapes until i have enough  to start sewing together 
some day i will make something bigger
perhaps a coat!!!

I got so excited looking up links and examples of this art form that I forgot to leave a message! This is brilliant. I can SO see you doing a coat. What a fun way to use up yarns. I must learn to do a few of those fancy, shmancy, Nancy stitches! Brilliant!
