When on holidays in Amsterdam recently, I bought about 6kg of a special yarn I found on the internet: it is called Hoooked Zpagetti. The material is actually fabric. You have to use really huge crochet hooks to work with it. The positive aspect is, that your project comes togtehr quickly due to the bulky material. So I bought 2 balls each of three colors. And this is my first project for which I used on ball (actually I tiny bit of the second ball was needed for the embellishment).
Here is a handbag I made of a stretchy turquoise/petrol “yarn” (the color does not come across right on the pictures). The only problem was inserting the lining. Even my really good sewing machine could not handle the bulkiness of the material. For the next handbag I need to find a different solution.
The lining is some fabric I bought a while ago at Ikea for a very small amount of money. I inserted two small pouches on each side for mobile phone, lighter, keys, MP3-player…
And here is a picture of the flower detail:
