More on Using Crochet to Finish Weaving Projects!

I am always finding a way to use crochet in my projects, no matter what technique I am using. I find that it is a great way to finish the edges of a purse. I crochet along the sides so I can make neat seams, and I find crochet is the best way to make fastenings and handles. For this purse, I crocheted two strips, then crocheted them together on the edges to make a strong handle that won't stretch out. I also crocheted a bobble that I stitched to the body of the purse, and I crocheted a fastening loop to the flap of the purse. Because you can insert your hook anywhere, crochet gives you the flexiblity to change the look and shape of the woven piece after it is finished!
