I had a close look at pictures of the original and am crocheting similar types of motif to embellish it with. The key to it seems to be loads and loads of bobbles. Bobbles are a real pain to make but I am going to persevere. The yarn is Twilleys No. 1 Cotton - another amazing charity shop bargain! I have six hanks of it which gives a total of 960 metres. Should be plenty. The original bag has a pewter effect chain trim and straps which I also hope to use on mine. The bag will also be lined to help it hold it's shape and give it some strength. Maybe some inside pockets too.
Meanwhile in the kitchen, Millie made these fab fairy cakes. They taste every bit as good as they look.
