If you’ve been following my blog for a while, you know how I feel about skulls. If not, my UnFinishedObject Bag posting will fill you in. The cylindrical UFO bag has some things in common with this one; they’re both tapestry crocheted with nylon, have skulls, and boney handles, but the Bag of Skulls has an oval base and more skulls.
Airlines allow purses of any size (within reason), so I made this one small enough to fit under an airline seat, but large enough to hold A LOT of stuff! And – the skulls are apotropaic (they scare away evil).
You, too, can tapestry crochet your own Bag of Skulls! Instructions for right handed crocheters and left handed crocheters are now for sale on Patternfish, a fabulous online pattern store. I hope you’ll give it a try!
