Step 7: My modified hooks for Bullion Stitch:

Bullion stitch adds great texture and variety to freeform crochet.  It can be awkward to do because of all the wraps around the hook.  I made modified hooks to make bullion stitch quicker and more enjoyable.  In this youtube video I explain how to do the bullion stitch with modified hooks. 
I want to credit Teresa Richardson as it was her original idea that I modified (my video gives web links).

<p>This is so beautiful !</p><p>How did you attach it to the handbag?</p>
<p>That is a most awesome recycling, up-cycling crochet project!. I'd heard the word Freeform crochet, but had never seen it until this post. I have great bags and totes for style and size, but the colors are never right. I can't wait to dress up my bags. Thank you. </p>
<p>So Cool!</p>
Your bag's awesome! I have so much scrap yarn, and seeing your bag finally gave me an idea how to use the scraps. Thanks! :D
<p>Wow....Very well done....I hope I could also make one like this one day...Am interested trying the free form crochet....thanks for sharing this with all the details....</p>
<p>This is a great way to use up all those scraps of yarn we needle workers always have on hand. </p>
<p>This is gorgeous!</p>
<p>Absolutely beautiful! I hadn't thought of using my old bags. You could even buy bags at the thrift store for this! Thanks!</p>

I love free form crochet. It's so much more artistic. Your bag turned out great!
When I first saw your post, I thought it was a sea scape with an octopus. I love it! I think this may qualify for the &quot;Sew It Warm&quot; contest. Have you thought about entering?
Gorgeous and unique!!!!

This is beautiful! My daughter and I recently played around with this style. You have inspired me! Thanks for sharing. <br>Sunshiine
Gorgeous purse! I've never tried freeform crochet, it looks like a lot of fun and a great way to use up bits of left over yarn.
