A handbag for my GPS made in crochet

Last year, I decided to invest and buy an very good GPS (a TomTom GO 500), expecting to do some serious roadtrip and photos around USA, in the Fall πŸ™‚

I’ve been really happy about it and had the chance to use it many times since and never been desappointed by it – and actually couldn’t have any choice but buy a new one since my former one broke on my way to a wedding, somewhere lost in the country side-

Anyway, it’s a great one but the ONLY thing I could repproach, is that there is NOTHING to protect the screen and protect it in general…

So I’ve decided to work on that.

I had a leftover of Bernat Softee Chunky YarnΒ (color “Collegiate”, and my shiny glittering hook (size 6mm), and so I improvisedΒ  a little something πŸ™‚

I wanted to make something shaped like and enveloppe…

So I crochet a Pocket, at first, to hold the screen of the GPS

and then, right on its back, I started to crochet another Pocket, with more stitches to make it wider and larger, so that it could hold the part that holds the screen of the GPS and the cable for it.

From there, I ended my work by crocheting something shaped like a triangle, and decided to sew a button also,to hold and close the “envelopp” πŸ™‚

And then, I wanted to be a bit fancy ! I had crocheted few bow tie that I kept in my drawer, waiting to be used…. and I realised that I had one yellow left ! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ So I added it on top of it to hide a bit the button πŸ™‚

And then : tadaaaaaaaaaaaaaa !!!!!! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

I have to say that it looks much better that what I first expected to knit, so I’m quite happy with it ! πŸ™‚

Do you feel inspired ? I’m sure your GPS also needs some protection, right ? πŸ™‚
