Faux Wayuu Mochila

One of my friends asked if I can make her a Wayuu Mochila (mochila being Spanish for bag) for her birthday. The Wayuu are Indians living in South America, in Venezuela and Colombia to be specific, so no, as a girl from The Netherlands I can't make her a Wayuu Mochila, but yes, I can make her a Dutch mochila. To practice a bit, I first made this one for myself, so the one I make for my friend hopefully will not have the little faults this one has.



My Girly Bags were featured by Embracing Change and Creative Crochet Workshop this week!!

Thank you so much, Stacey and Joanita!!

  11. I love it! Your color work is incredible! I have been experimenting with making similar bags, but without the changing of colors in this way. I've been changing at the new round and "dipping" into previous rounds. You know... taking the easy way out! haha I really should give something like this a try. Yours is very inspiring!
    Thank you for sharing with #FiberTuesday link party!
