Stash-busting #9 - Granny square bag.


Som tidligere nevnt har et av stash-buster prosjektene jeg har holdt på med i april har vært en veske av bestemorruter. Jeg begynte å hekle ruter i begynnelsen av måneden, og har jobbet litt nå og litt da. Målet var å få veska ferdig i løpet av måneden, og det har jeg klart for nå er den ferdig :)


As I have mentioned earlier one of my stash-buster projects for April was a granny square bag. 
I started working on in at the beginning of the month, and have been working on it now and then througout the month. 
My goal was to finish the bag by the end of April, which I did because now the bag is finished :)



Alle bestemorrutene er heklet med plantefarget ullgarn.
De røde fargene kommer fra krapp og de gulbrune fra anattofrø. Ellers er det brukt opp en god del restegarn  farget med bla. rødrandkjuke, grankongler og lav.


All the granny squares were crocheted with naturally dyed wool.
The red shades achieved from madder root and the brown-yellowish from anatto seeds. I have also spent bits and ends dyed with redbanded polypore, spruce cones and lichens.



Alle rutene sydd sammen til ønsket form.

All the squares stitched up.



Håndtak og for er klart.
Foret er gjenbruk av en gammel gardin.

Handles and lining are ready.
The lining is made out of a recycled curtain.



Og - ta-da - her er den ferdige veska: 
(som dere ser har det vært overskyet vær her i dag, så jeg fikk ikke tatt bilder i solskinn...)

And - Ta-da - here's the finished bag:
(as you can see it's been overcast here today, so I did not get to take photos in sunlight...)




Helt til slutt fant jeg ut at jeg ville hekle en blomst til pynt. Den er festet på med en sikkerhetsnål, så veska kan brukes både med og uten hekleblomsten. 
Den heklede blomsten har fått en knapp av ekte rav til pynt :)


Finally I decided to crochet a flower as embellishment. It is attatched with a safety pin, so it can easily be removed or moved around.
The crochet flower has an amber button in the centre :)


Tilsammen har jeg brukt opp 209 gram garn på dette prosjektet, 198 gram på bestemorrutene og 11 gram på hekleblomsten.


For the granny square bag I used up a total of 209 grams of yarn from my stash, 198 grams on the granny squares and 11 grams on the crochet flower.

The bag is so cute! I like how you use naturally dyed wool, it must be so rewarding to see it in a finished project :)

Have a great week.

You my dear are absolutely amazing! Every time I pop by I am in awe of your hand dyed yarn. I especially love the colours in your header. Wish I could get colours like that down here. (insert sad face). Don't be surprised if you wake up one day and find me living in your garden. ;-) I think I would be quite happy out there. Well maybe not in winter :-) Your bag is awesome. Love the way you showed the progress along the way. Just beautiful. Hugs xoxox

From start to finish, you have made this granny bag a work of art! The subtle shades of all your home-dyed yarns are amazing, and they all blend together so beautifully. You must feel quite proud of the end result ... it's gorgeous! The little flower just adds that perfect embellishment too. Wendy

Just LOVE this bag! Thank you for showing us the progress...it was very interesting :-)

Eva said...

Utrolig lekkert! Jeg fatter ikke at noen har tålmodighet til slik pirkarbeid.. men det er jo gøy når resultatet blir så flott som her! Husker slike vesker i fra 70 tallet, min mor laget også en veske heklet på disse rutene. Også et slumreteppe..

Ha en fin kveld, og klem sendes..

Mia said...

Så tidlig veske du laget igjen. Rødrandkjuke, har du farget med det og? Det tror jeg ikke jeg klart fått med meg. Hvem farge ble det ?

Natas Nest said...

Hi,Hilde.
This bag is really cute, I like the colors. This bag makes me feel young if I go out with that bag!
Have a nice weekend.

Hilde said...

Thanks you all for your lovely words, and thanks for visiting :)

Mia: Jeg farget med rødrandkjuke både i 2011 og 2012. Fargen ble beige, ganske fin beige første gang, mens i fjor synes jeg fargen ble noe for lys. Men sånn er det jo med plantefarging :)

Ingvild said...

Å for en herlig veske!

Hilde said...

Takk Ingvild :)
