Crochet Along: Beach Bag

29 June, 2013

I have to confess, this was probably my favorite crochet along project thus far thanks to a pretty healthy obsession with bags.

But this bag, I didn't keep for myself. I sent it to my friend Micah along with a couple other items for her to use this summer on her upcoming staycation adventures and/or time at the pool.

      
I used Lily Sugar 'N Cream cotton yarn in turquoise and white. I unfortunately don't know how much I of it I used of each as I had enough left over bits from other projects for this one. I also had to modify the pattern a bit (like I generally do) thanks to using a larger hook than the pattern suggested and didn't follow the directions at all when it came to the handle. I love the way the bag turned out though. This is definitely a pattern/bag I am going to make again!

  4. This came out so lovely! I'm in the process of learning to sew bags, so I know exactly what you mean. But the more you create, the better you get. :)

  7. Thanks! Most of the bags I make have stripes. I think I'd like to try making one with a solid color next.

  9. Oh wow, I love that you managed to make something out of yarn look so light and summery! Is it strong enough to hold the volume of things that fits in it? You should upload it to Kollabora.com, the crafting and DIY community. We've all been looking for tote inspiration lately!
