I’m a huge fan of crochet bags. No surprise really, probably what is the surprise if that I haven’t ever got around to sharing my many creations with you here.
I’ve made them for years, and they see to be my go to project for a holiday as acrylic yarn and hot weather does not make for nice crocheting. I started this one in Dubai, then finished it at one of the numerous UK pools I frequent on a weekly basis.
But the one I will share with you today, is aptly called “Wing it Market Tote”
I wanted something loopy, and expandable, but also with a little bit of structure.
I started making this on the train to London.
And then have taken it to the usual pools.
And a couple of waiting rooms!
It’s worked from the top down, so you start the handles first, then go onto the “body” of the bag.
I love my new bag – and will get around to writing the pattern for it soon, and I’ll even teach a workshop on how to make it too, BUT, I need to modify it a little.
I say a little, this is mainly due to me being a tad short. I’m only 5 foot 3, and when I put anything heavy in it, it does stretch a little too much (and hits the ground). So I’m going to make a new one, properly writing down how to make this, and make it a little shorter, as this is easier than making me grow!
But in the meantime – just have a little look at it in all its glory.
