Learn the basic techniques of Fair Isle by making a fun folk inspired patch bag. Get confident working at 2 colours at the same time across a row and see the benefits of reading from a graph. The handle and side seem detail are made from a mock crochet chain technique. You will add some beads at the bottom for that extra finishing touch.

In this tutorial Jennie shows us how to sew the Swarovski CREATE YOUR STYLE Crystals into your finished garment. This technique can also be used for when adding beads.
