I love this bag!- made by you Monday

on March 30, 2014

I like purses, though I’m not one to buy a bunch of them or a any other thing for that matter (except maybe yarn LoL). However, I don’t feel as bad about making them though! I haven’t made more than one for myself yet, but I enjoy making them for others. I just love all the adorable bags out there to make.


This bag in particular is a favorite of mine.


Sometimes I like to attach some cute flowers or a ribbon.

It’s based on  a lovely market bag pattern that I found over at Daisy Cottage Designs.  She has a wonderful blog for crochet!  I did adapt the pattern with the way I constructed the handles, and to make it larger as the pattern there was for a child-size bag (though I think that size is wonderful for adults too, depending on what you want to use it for).

I made one that I use as a purse sometimes.  Since it’s a market bag, it isn’t lined, so I just have to be careful that I don’t have anything small and loose in there.  I would love to figure out how to line these bags, but I seem challenged by round ones.  (I’m not a great sewer).  I have learned to line rectangular ones though 🙂

If you do not crochet and would like me to make you a bag, orders can be placed in my Etsy shop.
