A New Bag & Two Slouchy Beanies

I made a new bag which I just finished today(please ignore the hand holding up the bag and Hazel's foot. Hazel was supposed to hold the bag while I took the pic but before that happened, she got sand all over her hands and so I had to hold it while hubby became the cameraman). I didn't really follow any specific pattern. As for the handle, I was inspired by a bag I saw awhile ago(I forgot where). I just winged it and luckily it came out perfect! I  actually wanted to make a small pouch with a zipper but it ended up too big. 
Another slouchy beanie made with the same Mohair yarn to replace the first one which I swapped for points at the Swap Workshop. Here, artisans and hobbyists connect to swap their handmade, vintage or craft supplies. No item is for sale, no money is exchanged between members and no trade is ever turned down! It's a way to promote and at the same time it's a fun, inexpensive way of acquiring the things you love by trading. It is NOT a direct swap between two people but rather an exchange of an item for so many points (swap number) so you never have to say "no" to a trade request because you are not obliged to choose something of theirs in return! When you send your item you receive a swap number (points) as a reward instead which then allows you to choose something for yourself. The site is run by a unique points system where a ($) value of an item equates to a certain number of points. If you do join, please mention my name aisyahelga as your reference. Thanks!
It was still very sunny when we went to the beach even though it was already 6 PM so all the pics came out either too dark or too bright. Hazel smiling not very sincerely..
And the sun was so bright that I couldn't see the camera screen. I just snapped away and didn't check 'cos I was eager to escape the heat.
This one I took indoors. I tried to catch the colors as accurately as possible to the real thing.
A customer ordered this slouchy beanie for her 2 year-old daughter using these sweet colors.
I didn't have a model that small so these pics will have to do.

Have a great week ahead!
