A jellyfish hipflask stash shoulder bag

A crochet accessory with a secret…

If you have been following along for awhile now, you may have noticed a series of recurring themes. All Seeing Eyes are one, as is amigurumi food such as fruit and desserts. Rainbows come up a lot. And occasionally, jellyfish…

I recently sourced a spool of hot pink, white and orange colour change wool from a charity shop. It is called Save the Children and is located in Bath, if you are in the area and can visit, I would recommend it!

I decided to pair this wool up with a round stainless steel hipflask sourced from another op shop, and during a recent car trip I used the downtime to get started on the inner shoulder bag that encloses the flask.

After finishing the shoulder bag, I set about creating the jellyfish top slider bead. It’s basically a scaled up version on the clipper holders, designed to hang around the waist.

There is a hypoallergenic polyfill stuffing inside, similar material to what you find in pillows. There’s a few different layers of ruffles and frills, as well as dangling tassles, hanging threads and curled cords.

Find it on Depop if you need a jellyfish buddy for a mermaid costume 🦑💕
