My Fruit Colour-in Bag
Barbara Lawler Designs
Hooks & yarn

My friend really did not like the dark background used on My Fruit Salad Bag and it was unusual for me to do something with such a dark background. So I just had to make another one! I was stuck for ideas to use for the back and my husband suggested making the fruits using the background colour only. This then set me off on my colouring book idea. All the fruits were crocheted individually and some were then filled with wadding. I worked a blanket stitch round the edge of each fruit so they could be crocheted together to make the fabric for the bag. The crayon was the only object which was stitches onto the surface of the bag.
I really like this idea and am working on more examples. Hope you like it.
