Chatelaines and Purse Update!

A friend (Tally Tatty) told me about how she was making a chatelaine, thought about it for a while and realize how this is an excellent idea!  Now I don't misplace my crochet hook or scissors!
Don't know why they when out of style! 
My strawberry bag is big enough for rings, but I really place a balloon in it, to pull those end threads through! 
I have more than one, my husband made the leather necklace, this holds a whistle for emergence's or to break up a fight:) I did make the hooks too by gluing the hook into the bead. 
 After mignonette is done a series of ring of 4ds and 3p all connecting, with a chain of 5ds p 5ds.
The pins show they pattern the rings lay in the mignonette which is ring, ring, 2 rings, ring ring till end.
I recommend placing pins to mark your place that 2 rings go, I never made a mistake on this round!

This was not ironed
 and comes out so nice and lays flat. Now off to make another!
